Summary Judgment Motions
Motions for summary judgment and responses must comply with Local Rules 56.1(a) and 56.1(b), as well as the procedures outlined herein. The Local Rules are
not mere technicalities. The Court
expects strict compliance with the Local Rules regarding summary judgment. Failure to comply with the Local Rules may
result in the Court striking briefs, disregarding statements of fact, deeming
statements of fact admitted, and denying summary judgment. See
Modrowski v. Pigatto, 712 F.3d 1166, 1169 (7th Cir. 2013), Keeton v. Morningstar, Inc., 667 F.3d
877, 884 (7th Cir. 2012).
If a party contends that its
opponent has included inadmissible evidence, improper argument, or other
objectionable material in a Local Rule 56.1 submission, the party typically should
raise its argument that the Court should not consider such material in the
party’s response or reply brief and not in a separate motion to strike.
