Submitting a Proposed Order, Agreed or Otherwise, for Electronic Entry by the Judge
When appropriate, the parties may submit to the Court a Proposed Order for the judge to consider, modify if necessary, and enter electronically. All Proposed Orders must be attached to an e-mail sent to the e-mail address of the assigned judge, Proposed_Order_Valdez@ilnd.uscourts.gov. The subject line of the e-mail must include the case number and name, the docket number of the corresponding motion, if any, and the title of the order that is proposed. All such documents must be submitted to the court in a format compatible with Microsoft Word or WordPerfect. Any Proposed Order must also be served on all parties.
Submitting a Proposed Order electronically is not a substitute for filing a motion. A Proposed Order may only be submitted after the corresponding motion has been filed unless the Court has given prior leave to submit an order without motion.
The Court will not read or consider any motion or correspondence sent to the Proposed Order Inbox without prior authorization.
