Motion Practice

The Court will send a notice to counsel when scheduling a motion hearing. The Court enforces E.D. Mich. LR 7.1(d) with respect to the filing of responses to motions. The FULL TEXT of any source cited should be filed with the Court as an appendix; the relevant portion should be highlighted or underlined. The appendix shall contain an index. The Court generally refers civil discovery motions to a Magistrate Judge. The Court rarely grants ex parte applications pursuant to E.D. Mich. LR 7.1(c)(3)(A) to file a brief longer than 25 pages. The Court requires strict compliance with E.D. Mich. LR 7.1(a) regarding seeking concurrence in motions. Any proposed orders must be sent through the UTILITIES/PROPOSED ORDERS function of CM/ECF. They are not docketed.
