Summary Judgment Motions
The parties will be expected to comply with Local Rule 56.1
in regard to motions for summary judgment. Also, the parties are reminded of the admonition, required by the Seventh Circuit, as to what notice must be included in a motion for summary judgment when dealing with a pro se party. This notice should include both the text of Rule 56(e) and a short and plain statement in ordinary English that any factual assertion in the movant's affidavits will be taken as true by the district court unless the non-movant contradicts the movant with counter-affidavits or other documentary evidence.
