In Salata v. Weyerhaeuser Co., 757 F.3d 695 (7th Cir. 2014) (No. 13-3136), defendants filed a motion, via ECF, to compel plaintiff to produce certain discovery.  The court entered an order granting the motion to compel, ordering plaintiff to produce all outstanding discovery by a certain date, and setting a status hearing.  Plaintiff’s counsel failed to produce the discovery, and failed to appear at the status hearing.  Defendant moved to dismiss the case as a discovery sanction under FRCP 37 and/or for failure to prosecute under FRCP 41(b), which the court set for a hearing.  Plaintiff’s counsel again failed to show at the hearing, and the court dismissed the case.  Plaintiff’s counsel subsequently filed a motion to reinstate, attempting to excuse her failure to respond to the motions and appear at the hearings by claiming she never received the email notifications of those events.  Plaintiff, however, refused to produce the outstanding discovery, and the court denied the motion to reinstate.  The Seventh Circuit affirmed the dismissal of the action, holding that by registering with the court’s ECF system, plaintiff’s counsel had consented to electronic service of all documents, and it was counsel’s responsibility to maintain a current and active email address to which such service could be sent.  The court concluded that if counsel was unaware of hearings and motions because the email address she had on file with the court was no longer current, her ignorance of the docket was “nothing but negligence” and does not constitute “excusable neglect.”
