Communications with Chambers for case related matters:
The Court strongly prefers email communication with the courtroom
deputy. If you have questions about a case assigned to Judge Jantz, please read
through the procedures on this website before contacting the courtroom deputy.
Additionally, if the parties resolve an issue that is scheduled for a hearing
or that is otherwise under consideration by Judge Jantz counsel should email
the courtroom deputy as soon as possible. Opposing counsel must be copied on
all emails. Counsel may jointly contact the Courtroom Deputy at Anthony_Squillante@ilnd.uscourts.gov
Communications with Chambers for non-case related matters:
Please send an email to: Chambers_Jantz@ilnd.uscourts.gov
All settlement letters should be sent to: Settlement_Correspondence_Jantz@ilnd.uscourts.gov
All proposed orders should be sent to: Proposed_Order_Jantz@ilnd.uscourts.gov
Local Rule 5.2(f) remains suspended. Judge Jantz does not require courtesy copies of court filings, unless specifically requested by the Court. Please see Fifth Amended General Order 21-0027 for important additional details.
All electronic filings (with the exception of exhibits) should be generated by “printing to PDF” from the original word processing file, so that the text of the digital document is searchable. PDFs created by scanning paper documents are not searchable. Therefore, the Court prefers that, if a party has the means to do so, PDFs that are created by scanning paper be OCR’d so that they are also searchable.
Local Rule 5.3(b) remains suspended. The Court will accept motions, but they cannot be noticed for presentment. The Court will notify parties of the need, if any, for a hearing by electronic means. Please see Fifth Amended General Order 21-0027 for important additional details.
All motions must state with specificity when and how the movant complied with the meet and confer requirement of Local Rule 37.2 , and when opposed, the opposing party’s position. This good faith effort to resolve or narrow the dispute should be done telephonically or through a video conferencing platform; the mere exchange of emails or letters will generally be insufficient to comply.
Uncontested or agreed motions should be so identified in both the title and body of the motion.
