LCR 37. FAILURE TO MAKE DISCOVERY: SANCTIONS (a) Motion for Order Compelling Discovery. Motions to compel discovery shall be noted for hearing on Motion for Hearing Ex Parte Issue of Law before the ex parte commissioner (if the case is not pre-assigned to a judicial department) on any court day during regular business hours. If the case is pre-assigned to a judicial department, the motion shall be noted for hearing on the motion calendar for that department. The ex parte commissioner, in his or her discretion, may refer the motion to the presiding judge, if the case is not pre-assigned. The presiding judge may assign the case to a judge if it has not already been pre- assigned, or may return the motion to the ex parte commissioner. In the absence of emergency, no motion or objection with respect to CR 30, 31, 33, 34, or 35 will be heard unless it affirmatively appears that before the hearing counsel have conferred and attempted to resolve the issue(s). If any party has refused to confer, terms will be assessed against that party. The notice requirements of LCR 40(b)(10) apply to motions governed by this rule. Amended effective 9/1/04
