MINUTES OF THE COURT
July 11, 2016
THE HONORABLE VALERIE P. COOKE, U.S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
REPORTER: NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR PLAINTIFF(S): NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR DEFENDANT(S): NONE APPEARING
MINUTE ORDER IN CHAMBERS:
Plaintiff filed a partial motion for summary judgment that was seventy-five pages of
written text together with an eight-page table of contents (ECF No. 145). Pursuant to Local Rule
7-3(a), motions for summary judgment are limited to thirty pages excluding exhibits. Therefore,
plaintiff’s motion for partial summary judgment (ECF No. 145) was stricken by the court’s order
(ECF No. 156). Plaintiff was granted an extension of time to July 15, 2016 to refile a motion for
partial summary judgment that is no longer than thirty pages. Id.
Rather than do as the court ordered and shorten his motion to thirty pages or less, plaintiff
merely split his motion into two separate motions for partial summary judgment. Plaintiff may
not file two motions in an attempt to circumvent the Local Rules. Both of plaintiff’s motions for
partial summary judgment (ECF Nos. 157 &158) are hereby STRICKEN.
Plaintiff shall have one final opportunity to Wednesday, July 20, 2016 to file a motion
for summary judgment that is thirty pages or less pursuant to LR 7-3(a). If plaintiff fails to file a
motion that is under thirty pages in length, he will be precluded from filing a dispositive motion
as untimely. The court acknowledges that plaintiff has filed an objection to its order (ECF No.
159); however, this does not stay plaintiff’s obligation to timely follow the court’s orders.
On or before Friday, July 29, 2016 defendants may either withdraw their opposition and
cross-motion and refile another document or file a notice to the court stating that they wish the
opposition and cross-motion to stand. Thereafter, plaintiff shall have until Friday, August 12,
2016 to file an opposition to the cross-motion and reply in support of his motion. This document
is limited to twenty pages pursuant to Local Rule 7-3(a).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
LANCE S. WILSON, CLERK
