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 is looked upon with disfavor and shall not be granted except in unusual circumstances. Any such leave must be requested prior to submission of the memorandum.
Parties must attach to their memoranda copies of any cited authority that is unpublished in the West National Reporter System and unavailable on Westlaw.
Citations should follow the format prescribed in "A Uniform System of Citation" (the "Bluebook").
All citations should include a pin-point citation to the precise page on which the language relied on appears.
The Court strongly encourages all filings to include hyperlinks to any cases or docket entries referred to in the pleadings. If possible, the Court prefers hyperlinks to exhibits as well but recognizes that this may entail more time and expense. To the extent possible, the Court prefers any citation to exhibits, cases, and docket entries to be hyperlinked.
