The opinion of the court was delivered by: Otis D. Wright, II United States District Judge
ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFFS LEAVE TO FILE A SUR-REPLY
The Court has received Defendants' Reply in support of their February 7 Motion for Summary Judgment. While the Reply technically and formalistically complies with the Local Rules' formatting and length guidelines, the Court notes that DC has buried the equivalent of at least three full pages of argument into footnotes.
This is an improper proper use of footnotes,*fn1 and the Court does not condone such a blatant attempt to subvert the Local Rules' page-length dictates. Plaintiff is therefore granted leave to file a sur-reply no longer than 5 pages in length to respond to any arguments addressed in Defendants' Reply. Should she choose to file a sur-reply, Plaintiff must do so no later than Monday, March 18, 2013.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
