ABS-CBN Corp. v. Pinoy Grill, LLC, No. 16 C 11448, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. Jan. 9, 2017) (Shadur, Sen. J.).

Judge Shadur sua sponte ordered plaintiff to comply with Local Rule 5.2(f) and the Court’s directive that all pleadings – including complaints – be delivered to the Court in hard copy. The Court ordered that plaintiff’s counsel serve courtesy copies and pay a $100 fine.

The Court noted that in December alone, there were six cases in which a complaint or related paper was not served on the Court. The Court noted that this “large-scale noncompliance” was “troubling.”
