Proposed Rules ArchivesCRLJ 56 - Summary Judgment
GR 9 Cover Sheet
Purpose: The suggested rule changes in subsection (c) make the filing schedule for summary judgment motions in the courts of limited jurisdiction consistent with the filing schedule for summary judgment motions in the superior courts (CR 56(c).) Consistency between the two rules would simplify practice for attorneys who practice in both courts and would not have any negative impact on practice in the courts of limited jurisdiction.
The suggested changes to subsection (c) include a requirement that a copy of CRLJ 56 be served on unrepresented parties when those parties are served with a motion for summary judgment, to ensure that each party is made aware of the filing deadlines and other necessary information regarding summary judgment motions.
Finally, new subsection (h) requires that the order granting or denying the motion for summary judgment specify the documents and other evidence relied on by the trial court in making its decision. This subsection is also consistent with the rule applicable to the superior court (CR 56(h).)
