All parties must be fully prepared to orally argue any discovery motion on the date that it is presented. The Court will often decide discovery motions after oral argument at the motion call and without briefing. If after argument the Court believes the motion requires briefing, the Court normally will set a briefing schedule.
Motions to strike portions of briefs are disfavored, and will be granted only in particularly egregious circumstances. See Custom Vehicles, Inc. v. Forest River, Inc., 464 F.3d 725, 727-28 (7th Cir. 2006) (“Despite the fact that motions to strike portions of briefs are not authorized by the rules and are not only unnecessary (from the parties' perspective) but also pointless (from the judiciary's), they are filed all the time.”).
