Notices and Important Information
Attorneys are required to appear at status and motion hearings as scheduled. If an attorney has a conflict on the assigned date, the attorney must notify Chambers of the conflict and, if appropriate, the Court will reschedule.

Parties who appear in court on a matter, whether set for a status or motion hearing, must be prepared to argue any motions pending in the case.
All hearings shall proceed in person unless otherwise ordered. Parties seeking leave to appear via telephone shall email Judge Blakey's Courtroom Deputy, Gloria Lewis, at Gloria_Lewis@ilnd.uscourts.gov.

NOTICE: Judge Bucklo's standing order regarding noticing motions for hearing. This standing order supersedes any prior order as it relates to noticing motions for hearing:
NON-EMERGENCY MOTIONS shall be noticed on Judge Bucklo's motion call (see motion schedule below) and the Court will rule by written order on or before the date of presentment. Appearances in court will not be required. (The presentment date is for tracking purposes only.) Moving counsel shall notify all parties that the Court will rule by written order and that an appearance on the presentment date is not required. This includes dispositive motions (motions for summary judgment, motions to dismiss, etc.); no appearance will be required. The Court will set a briefing schedule on dispositive motions, unless one has been set in a prior order.
Motion Schedule: Civil motions may be noticed up for any Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, at 9:45 a.m. Criminal motions may be noticed up for any Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, at 10:15 a.m. Moving counsel shall attempt to learn whether there is an objection and shall note whether the motion is unopposed. The presentment date shall be no fewer than 3 business days after the motion is filed.
Before any emergency motion is filed, counsel shall notify Judge Bucklo's courtroom deputy at MARIA_G_HERNANDEZ@ILND.USCOURTS.GOV OR 312-435-7611. The courtroom deputy will advise counsel how to proceed.
Pleadings attached as exhibits to a motion requesting leave of court to file shall be filed separately on the docket if leave is granted.
Hyperlinks: The Court strongly encourages all filings to include hyperlinks to any cases or docket entries referred to in the pleadings. If possible, the Court prefers hyperlinks to exhibits as well but recognizes that this may entail more time and expense. To the extent possible, the Court prefers any citation to exhibits, cases, and docket entries to be hyperlinked. Please see http://www.ned.uscourts.gov/internetDocs/cmecf/hyperlinking_attorneys_word.pdf for directions on how to include hyperlinks in filings.
Proposed draft orders may be emailed to the court at: Proposed_Order_Bucklo@ ilnd.uscourts.gov. The court particularly appreciates draft orders on motions for protective orders, for temporary restraining orders, and for criminal matters. Draft orders on routine motions are not required.
Parties' Planning Report: Parties are required to file their Planning Report at least three days prior to the conference in court or by the date designated by the court in an order. (Please see Scheduling Conference link for the Report form.)

        NOTICE
Appearing by Phone: As a courtesy the Court permits out-of-town and suburban counsel to participate in routine status and motion hearings by telephone using a landline number. To arrange for a telephonic conference please contact the Courtroom Deputy Emily Wall the day before the hearing date and provide the telephone number and the name of the attorney participating by telephone. Please see the link under Case Procedures for additional instructions regarding appearing by phone.
Courtesy Copies: Unless otherwise instructed by the Court, courtesy copies should be delivered by first class mail or its equivalent. Next day or otherwise expedited delivery (including delivery by messenger) is unnecessary in the normal course, and such expense is generally not justifiable.
Courtesy copies should always be printed from ECF after electronic filing so that the copies include the ECF header. Courtesy copies should be printed on both sides of the paper whenever possible. All electronically filed documents should be made word searchable before being filed on ECF. The Court prefers that citations to unpublished opinions be Westlaw citations. Please see the link under Case Procedures for further details regarding the Court's rules for courtesy copies.
Pendency of Motions: Parties should jointly inform the Court by contacting Emily Wall if the continuing pendency of a motion has caused or will cause hardship to one or more of the parties. Parties may also follow the procedures set forth in Local Rule 78.5 to inquire as to the status of a pending motion. No offense will be taken by the Court to such an inquiry or notice.

Until further notice, consistent with Fifth Amended General Order 20-0012, litigants are neither required nor permitted to notice motions for in-person presentment.

If the motion is opposed, the movant shall confer with the non-movant and submit a joint proposed briefing schedule in the motion or by email to proposed_order_pacold@ilnd.uscourts.gov. After reviewing the motion, the court will enter a briefing schedule or ruling on the docket. If the court determines that a hearing or argument is necessary, the court will schedule a telephonic hearing. Status hearings will be conducted by way of written status reports or telephone appearances, as directed by the court.
CRIMINAL CASES: Counsel must provide courtesy copies of any ex parte sealed motions to Ruth O'Shea no later than 24 hours after filing such motions.
        Standing Order

         IMPORTANT
All parties are directed to read the Court's Fifth Amended General Order 21-0027, dated October 11, 2022, available on the Northern District of Illinois homepage.
If a party is seeking relief from the Court, a motion must be filed. Pursuant to the Fifth Amended General Order, a notice of motion for presentment should not be filed. The Judge will notify parties of the need, if any, for a hearing by electronic means or in-court proceeding. For emergency motions, please refer to Judge Rowland's standing order on Emergency Motions.
If you need to reach Courtroom Deputy Dawn Moreno about an emergency matter as described in Judge Rowland's standing order on Emergency Motions or you were previously ordered by the Court to contact the courtroom deputy, the best way is to send Dawn an email at dawn_moreno@ilnd.uscourts.gov. The email should provide the case number in the subject line and contain a detailed message. Parties must "CC" counsel for all parties on the email.
Filings: All electronic filings must be generated from the original word file to a PDF document so that the text is searchable. PDF images created by scanning paper documents may be used only for exhibit or reference materials not available in PDF format.
Courtesy copies: In light of the General Orders regarding the pandemic, no courtesy copies may be submitted for filings unless the parties receive case-specific requests for copies from Judge Rowland.
Number of Days Notice: Per the Fifth Amended General Order 21-0027, motions should not be noticed for presentment. The Judge will notify parties of the need, if any, for a hearing.

Important Information
In view of the current situation regarding COVID-19, the Court recognizes that counsel and parties may wish (or need) to conduct more business by telephone in the days and weeks to come than ordinarily is the case, especially here in the Northern District of Illinois where in-person status hearings remain the norm. The Court urges each lawyer and litigant to consider whether a telephone appearance makes sense and if it does, the Court will be happy to accommodate. If you would like to appear by telephone for any hearing or status conference, please contact the Courtroom Deputy, Jessica J. Ramos, preferably by email (jessica_j_ramos@ilnd.uscourts.gov) or by telephone (312/435-6594) if necessary, to advise her of the case number and the name of the person who is expecting to participate. We will open the phone lines shortly before the start time every day that court is in session. Please use the Court's toll-free call-in number (888) 684-8852, conference access code is 9369830. Given the increased volume of users that is anticipated, we ask that you keep your phone on mute until your case is called.

Notice for Reassigned Cases
For all cases reassigned to Judge Appenteng:
All previously set hearing dates, deadlines, and schedules remain in effect.
For any case set for a settlement conference, the parties' submission deadlines remain in effect and Judge Appenteng's courtroom deputy will contact you regarding your schedule.
No Notice of Presentment Required
Parties are not to notice motions for presentment. The Court will notify parties of the need, if any, for a hearing.
Courtesy Copies Policy
Judge Appenteng does not require courtesy copies of court filings. If a courtesy copy is required, the Court will request it from the parties.
Important Information
Communications with Chambers for case related matters: The Court strongly prefers email communication with the courtroom deputy. Counsel should copy all counsel of record on any such emails. In particular, counsel should email the courtroom deputy as soon as possible if the parties resolve an issue that is scheduled for argument or under consideration by the judge. Counsel may jointly contact the courtroom deputy at Kym_Lozano@ilnd.uscourts.gov.
Communications with Chambers for non-case related matters: Please send an email to Chambers_Appenteng@ilnd.uscourts.gov.

COLE, Jeffrey, j.
  ROOM 1003—  Telephone (312) 435-5601
        NOTICE
All parties shall deliver a courtesy copy of all pleadings, motions, supporting memoranda and other filings to Room 1010 (courtroom deputy's office) pursuant to Local Rule 5.2(f). All filings must comply with Local Rule 5.2(d). Failure to timely provide a courtesy copy with exhibits seperated by protruding tabs will result in the motion being stricken and will necessitate a refiling of the motion.
Status Conferences and Motions: Status conferences and motions will be held every day, Monday - Friday, at 8:30 A.M.
Service of motions: Motions should be e-filed with Clerk's Office no later than the third business day preceding the day the motion is to be heard, except in the case of emergency motions. A courtesy copy of all motions, supporting memoranda, responses and replies MUST be delivered to chambers contemporaneously with the e-filing. See Local Rule 5.2(e). Pursuant to Local Rule 5.2(c), courtesy copies must be bound on the left side and include "protruding tabs for exhibits." Filings which do not have protruding tabs for exhibits will be stricken pursuant to Local Rule 5.2(d).
Emergency motions are exempt from the three day notice requirement. However, to qualify as an emergency, the motion must arise from circumstances that could not reasonably have been anticipated and that requires immediate action to avoid serious or irreparable harm. Discovery motions, including those seeking to extend discovery closing dates, will seldom qualify as emergencies. Prior to presenting the emergency motion, the movant must inform the courtroom deputy of the general nature of the motion and the reason for the emergency hearing. The parties will be notified if the motion will be deemed an emergency and will be heard at the requested time. Reasonable attempts must be made to notify opposing counsel. Only in the most exigent of circumstances, will actual or attempted notice be excused.
Appearances by counsel: Although I attempt to contact counsel to inform them if appearances will not be required, the process is not perfect, and thus, parties should consult the Court's website to determine if an appearance on the motion will be necessary. In the event the website does not have the information, they should contact, the Courtroom Deputy, between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. on the day before the motion is scheduled to be heard to determine whether an appearance will be necessary. Although it will seldom be necessary to appear on agreed motions, it will nonetheless be necessary to contact the Courtroom Deputy, if the website does not post an order granting the motion. Where appearances are excused, the moving counsel shall notify all other counsel in the case.

NOTICE FOR REASSIGNED CASES
For All Cases Reassigned to Judge Cummings:
All previously set status and motion hearing dates are stricken.
All previously set discovery deadlines and briefing schedules remain intact.
In cases where the parties have been ordered to file an Initial Joint Status Report for Reassigned Cases.
For case-related questions, please contact Judge Cummings' Courtroom Deputy, Chez Chambers, at (312) 435-6051 or chez_chambers@ilnd.uscourts gov. All parties must be copied on any case-related correspondence.
Motion Practice
Until further notice, parties need not notice motions for presentment. Upon the filing of a contested motion, the Court will enter a minute order in due course either setting a motion hearing, setting a briefing schedule, or otherwise providing further direction to the parties.
Before filing a motion, the movant's counsel must ask opposing counsel whether there is an objection to the motion and the motion must clearly indicate in the TITLE whether it is opposed or unopposed. If opposing counsel opposes the motion, the movant shall indicate in the motion whether opposing counsel intends to file a written response. If so, the parties should discuss a briefing schedule and the movant shall include the proposed briefing schedule (or competing briefing schedules) in the motion itself.
For further guidance on motion practice, please review the Court's Case Management Procedures under "Motion Practice."
Courtesy Copies
Unless otherwise requested by the Court, courtesy copies are not required, with the exception for motions for summary judgment and accompanying Local Rule 56.1 statements and exhibits. Those materials shall be tabbed and bound (e.g., binder or spiral bound).

FUENTES, Gabriel , j.
  ROOM 1838—  Telephone (312) 435-7570
NOTE:
Consent To Proceed Before a U.S. Magistrate Judge: Judge Fuentes encourages parties to consent to his jurisdiction so that he may preside over the entirety of the case, including ruling on dispositive motions and presiding over any trial. Because Judge Fuentes does not handle felony criminal cases, he generally is able to accommodate the requests of counsel for particular (and firm) trial dates. Parties are encouraged to read 28 U.S.C. Section 636 and Fed. R. Civ. P. 73 regarding trial by consent and discuss this option with their clients and opposing counsel.
The Court will dispense with its three-day notice requirement only in connection with emergency motions. To qualify as an "emergency," a motion must arise from an unforeseen circumstance that arises suddenly and unexpectedly, and that requires immediate action in order to avoid serious or irreparable harm to one or more of the parties. Motions for extension of time for filing, or for continuances of deadlines or other dates previously set by the Court, are highly unlikely to qualify as "emergencies." In the event a party seeks to present an emergency motion, that party must inform the courtroom deputy by email at jenny_jauregui@ilnd.uscourts.gov prior to filing the motion of the general nature of the motion and the reason that it requires emergency treatment, so that it can be determined if emergency treatment is appropriate. A party seeking to present an emergency motion must make all reasonable efforts to provide the opposing party with actual notice of the motion.

Contacting Chambers:
For communications with Chambers, please email Judge Holleb Hotaling's Courtroom Deputy, Ellen Reyes, at Ellen_Reyes@ilnd.uscourts.gov. Ensure you copy your opposing counsel on all communications with the Court.
To submit a proposed order to Judge Holleb Hotaling, please use Proposed_Order_HollebHotaling@ilnd.uscourts.gov.
Scheduling:
Motion hearings will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. unless otherwise scheduled by the Court. Joint, uncontested, and agreed motions must be so identified in the title and body of the motion. All motion hearings will be in person unless the parties are notified otherwise. No courtesy copies are allowed, unless the Court specifically requests one from the parties. Parties should not file a notice of motion with any submission; the Court will schedule your motion hearing (typically on the next available Tuesday or Thursday at 10:00 a.m.). Monitor the public docket for information regarding hearings. Status reports will typically be by written submission.
The majority of settlement conferences will be WebEx videoconferences. On occasion, the Court will set an in-person settlement conference. If you desire a settlement conference, please contact the Courtroom Deputy. Before your settlement conference, the Court will set an off-the-record pre-conference telephone call for the purpose of scheduling said settlement conference. These phone calls typically take place on Mondays at 11:00 a.m.; monitor your case docket for specific information applicable to your case. The counsel that appears for this pre-settlement telephone discussion must be counsel who will represent their respective clients at the conference, or are able to discuss the issues of the case and to schedule the conference on behalf of their clients. The Court expects counsel to discuss issues in the case that may affect the settlement process. Counsel should review Judge Holleb Hotaling's Standing Order on Settlement Conferences prior to the call. Judge Holleb Hotaling typically holds settlement conferences on Tuesdays (1:00 p.m.), Wednesdays (10:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m.), and Thursdays (1:00 p.m.).

JANTZ, Beth W. , j.
  ROOM 1812—  Telephone (312)435-3080
Notice of Judicial Absence: Judge Jantz will not be hearing motions on March 16-20, 2020.
For cases re-assigned to Judge Jantz:
All previously set status and motion hearing dates before the predecessor magistrate judge are stricken. The Court will set an initial status conference date. At the initial status conference, the Court will set new presentment dates for noticed motions. All previously set discovery schedules and briefing schedules remain intact. At least three business days before the initial status conference, parties shall confer, prepare, and file a joint status report, not to exceed 5 pages. Please review Judge Jantz's standing orders on initial status conferences and initial status reports.
Motions:
— Civil motions are heard Tuesday and Thursday mornings, at 9:30. Criminal motions are heard Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 10:30. Motions should be filed by the third business day before the presentment date. Parties are not to notice or re-notice any motions, with the exception of emergency motions, for any earlier than Thursday, February 27.
— Uncontested or agreed motions should be so identified in both the title and body of the motion. If you do not hear from the court by email, phone or court order, the motion will be heard as noticed in open court even if agreed or unopposed.
— All motions must state with specificity when and how the movant complied with a meet and confer requirement, such as that in Local Rule 37.2, and when opposed, the opposing party's position. This good faith effort to resolve or narrow the dispute should be done face to face or by telephone; the mere exchange of emails or letters will not normally be sufficient to comply.
