Pre-Motion Letters to Judge Sullivan Should Give an Overview of the Anticipated Motion

Joao Control & Monitoring Systems v. Digital Playground, Inc. et al.

Case Number: 1:12-cv-06781 (Dkt. 83)

Judge Sullivan said that his rules require pre-motion letters [link to the letters] to “provide a brief overview of the anticipated motion.” Plaintiff’s letter, however, “does not explain what alleged violation of the protective order Plaintiff now seeks enforcement against. As a result, the Court has no basis to determine whether allowing Plaintiff to make its motion would advance or hinder the interests of justice and judicial economy.” Accordingly he denied the request for a conference without prejudice.
