Case 3:09-cv-00133-DRH-PMF Document 34 Filed 05/11/10 Page 1 of 1 Page ID #647

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS

BETTY D. COOK,

Plaintiff,

v.

ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS,

Defendant.



No. 09-cv-0133-DRH

HERNDON, Chief Judge:

ORDER

Now before the Court is Defendant’s motion for enlargement of time

(Doc. 33 ). Specifically, Defendant’s counsel states that she needs more time to

prepare a reply to Plaintiff’s response to the motion for summary judgment due to

the volume of Plaintiff’s response. Local Rule 7.1 (c) states in part:

Reply briefs are not favored and should be filed only in exceptional
circumstances. The party filing the reply brief shall state the exceptional
circumstances.

Here, Defendant’s motion for enlargement of time does not state the exceptional

circumstances as to why a reply brief is needed. Thus, the Court DENIES the

motion.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

Signed this 11th day of May, 2010.
