Wesley Corporation et al v. ZOOM T.V. PRODUCTS et al
ORDER Requiring Plaintiffs to Comply with Formatting Rules. Signed by District Judge Robert H. Cleland. (LWag)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
WESLEY CORPORATION, et al.,
Case No. 17-10021
ZOOM T.V. PRODUCTS, LLC, et al.,
ORDER REQUIRING PLAINTIFFS TO COMPLY WITH FORMATTING RULES
Presently before the court are two motions: a motion for protective order filed by
Defendants (Dkt. #36) and a motion to compel filed by Plaintiffs (Dkt. #41). In reviewing
the briefing on these motions, the court has noted that Plaintiffs have consistently failed
to abide by Eastern District of Michigan Local Rule 5.1(a)(2), which sets forth the
formatting requirements in this court. (See Dkt. ##39, 41.) Pursuant to that rule, all
papers filed with the court must be double spaced (except for quoted materials and
footnotes), have one inch margins on all sides, and include consecutive page numbers.
Plaintiffs’ response to the motion for protective order does not have one inch
margins on all sides, is not double spaced, and does not have consecutive page
numbers. Plaintiffs’ motion to compel likewise lacks proper margins and page numbers.
Plaintiffs are cautioned that failure to abide by the formatting rules is grounds for the
court to strike a document from its docket. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiffs’ counsel read Eastern District of Michigan Local
Rule 5.1 before filing any further papers with this court. Plaintiffs must ensure that all
future filings conform to the formatting standards in that rule.
