LCrRLJ 8.2. MOTIONS (a) Motion Day. Motions shall be noted for and will be set the 2nd and last Friday of each month unless otherwise authorized by the court. (b) Filing of Motions, Memoranda, and Affidavits. The content and length of the Note for Hearing, Brief, Memoranda, and Affidavits are governed by LCRLJ 40 (b). (c) Copies of Motions, Memoranda and Affidavits. A copy of the motion, brief, memoranda, documents and affidavits shall be furnished to the Judge after the originals have been filed. Responding briefs, memoranda, and other documents shall also be filed with the Clerk, and copies furnished to the assigned Judge. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in a continuance and imposition of terms. (d) Pretrial Motions. All pretrial motions shall be filed, served and noted for hearing at least five days prior to the date specified for the hearing. Except as specially approved by the Court, all motions will be noted for hearing on the second or last Monday of the month. NO PRETRIAL MOTIONS SHALL BE HEARD OR NOTED FOR HEARING ON THE TRIAL DATE. Where no testimony is required, each side will be given ten minutes maximum in motion argument. If the hearing of a motion will take more than sixty minutes per side, notification must be given to the Court with an estimate of the time necessary at least ten days in advance so the Court may then specially set the motion. Furthermore, all 3.5 hearings must be noted by the defendant for the Motion calendar. The defendant must be present at the 3.5 hearing.
