This civil rights case, in which the district court issued sundry orders enforcing its local rule 17 based on suggested local rule 7 of the Manual for Complex Litigation, stands squarely on all fours with Bernard v. Gulf Oil Co., 619 F.2d 459 (5th Cir., 1980) (en banc). Accordingly, all orders enforcing local rule 17 in this case are vacated, and the case is remanded for proceedings not inconsistent with Bernard.
