RULE 7. PLEADINGS ALLOWED; FORM OF MOTIONS (b) Motions and Other Papers. (1) How Made. (A) Application on Same Facts. When an order has been refused in whole or in part (unless without prejudice) or has been granted conditionally and the condition has not been performed, the same application for an order may not be presented to another judge. (B) Subsequent Application, Different Facts. If a subsequent application is made upon an alleged different state of facts, it must be shown by affidavit that previous application was made, when and to what judge, what order or decision was made on it, and what new facts are claimed to be shown; and for a failure to comply with this requirement, any order made upon such subsequent application may be set aside, and appropriate sanctions applied. (C) Request for Bench Warrant. In all supplemental proceedings wherein an order is to be issued requiring the personal attendance of a party to be examined in open court, and in orders to show cause for contempt, the order shall be certified and personally served on that party and must include the following words, in capital letters: YOUR FAILURE TO APPEAR AS ABOVE SET FORTH AT THE TIME, DATE AND PLACE THEREOF WILL CAUSE THE COURT TO ISSUE A BENCH WARRANT FOR YOUR APPREHENSION AND CONFINEMENT IN JAIL UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE MATTER CAN BE HEARD OR UNTIL BAIL IS POSTED. No bench warrant will be issued in such cases for the apprehension of the cited person if said language has been omitted. (D) Affidavits. Affidavits must be made on personal knowledge, and affidavits containing the personal knowledge of a party must be signed, under oath, by that party, not by the attorney. [Amended effective September 1, 2012]
