Supporting Memoranda and Exhibits

All motions must be supported by memorandum, not to exceed 15 pages. See Local Rule 7.1. Alternatively, the motion may contain the principle argument and relevant authority that otherwise would comprise a supporting memorandum. Skeletal and unsupported arguments will not be considered and the argument will be deemed waived. See, Perry v. Sullivan, 207 F.3d 379, 383 (7th Cir. 2000); American Family Mutual Insurance v. Roth, 2007 WL 2410074 at *2 (N.D.Ill. 2007)(collecting cases); McWilliams v. McWilliams, 2006 WL 3775952 (N.D.Ill. 2006)(collecting cases)

Arguments raised for the first time in a reply brief will not be considered. See Hodgdon v. Northwestern University, 245 F.R.D. 337, 340 n.3 (N.D. Ill. 2007)(collecting cases).

Cases that are published only on electronic databases such as Westlaw and Lexis must be attached as exhibits to the memorandum.

Exhibits must be legible. For example, copies of portions of a deposition transcript should be printed as full pages, not as mini-scripts or condensed versions.
