Memorandum of Law
The fifteen (15) page limitation on all memoranda contained in Local Rule 7.1 shall be strictly enforced. A motion for leave to exceed that limit shall not be granted unless warranted.
Citation to unpublished opinions must include the Westlaw or Lexis citation. Westlaw citations are preferred. Parties shall attach to their memoranda only those unpublished opinions that are not in Westlaw's or Lexis's electronic database.
Illinois cases should be cited to both N.E.2d and Illinois Appellate Court Reports.
Briefing schedules are generally set by Court order. A motion for extension of time shall not be granted except on a showing of good cause. The circumstances warranting an extension shall be set forth in specific detail by written motion.
The Court will also consider motions at scheduled status hearings, so long as the notice requirements of Local Rule 5.3 have been met.
