Motion Practice

Non-dispositive motions, and particularly discovery-related motions, typically are referred to a Magistrate Judge. The Court, if available, will accept conference calls regarding disputes arising during depositions. See Discovery page.


The Court follows the general rules concerning dispositive motions, including courtesy copies. The Court will typically contact counsel by e-mail to schedule oral argument.
