Page Limits Cannot be Avoided by Filing Multiple Motions

The court struck defendant's seven motions for summary judgment. "The filing of multiple dispositive motions at the same time, in an obvious attempt to evade the page limitations set forth in the Local Rules, will not be allowed, unless the party seeking to file such motions obtains prior permission from the Court. Such permission will not be granted unless the party convinces the Court that multiple motions are necessary."
