Flava Works, Inc. v. Momient, No. 11 C 6306, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. July 16, 2012) (Shadur, Sen. J.).

Judge Shadur sua sponte struck defendants’ pro se answer pursuant to Local Rule 5.2(e) for failure to comply with the Local Rule 5.2(c) font and margin requirements.  The Court also identified the following non-exhaustive list of problems with the answer:

  • In violation of Fed. R. Civ. P. 8(b)(5), the defendant denied statements for which it lacked information and belief.
  • Defendants’ laundry list of 25 affirmative defenses was “unacceptable” for not providing sufficient factual notice.
