Description

INSTRUCTIONS FOR OPPOSING A MOTION1 . A motion requests the Court to take action under a specific Federal Rule. To oppose a motion, you must prepare an affidavit or affirmation. You will title your submission as appropriate, for example: plaintiff s opposition to defendants motion to dismiss or for summary judgment. A form is attached to these instructions. DO NOT USE THIS FORM AS YOUR AFFIDAVIT OR AFFIRMATION. The form is only provided as a guide. You should draft your own affidavit or affirmation in opposition to the motion. An affirmation is a statement which is made under penalty of perjury. An affidavit is sworn to before a licensed notary public of the state. When using the affidavit/ affirmation form, only use the terms which apply to the type of form you are submitting.2. If you are opposing a motion for summary judgment, your affidavit or affirmation should attach and refer to any relevant exhibits. You may also attach affidavits or affirmations from other people who have personal knowledge of relevant information regarding the motion. 3. You may also submit a memorandum of law to explain what the law is and how it applies to the facts of your case. However, any facts on which you rely must be in an affidavit or affirmation; it is not sufficient to state facts in a memorandum of law. Similarly, the affidavit or affirmation should contain only facts; do not include any references to the law in your affidavit or affirmation. If you prepare a memorandum of law, it must be sent along with your affirmation/affidavit to each defendant or his/her attorney(s).4. Make a copy of the papers you have prepared for each defendant or his or her attorney. If several defendants share the same attorney, you need only make one copy for that attorney. You must retain a copy of the opposition papers for yourself.5. Mail (or hand deliver) a copy of your opposition papers to the defendants or their attorney(s). First class mail is sufficient.6. Complete an affirmation of service (see attached). Attach the affirmation of service to the original papers for filing with the court.7. Unless your judges individual rules specify otherwise, bring or mail the original opposition papers (with the affirmation of service attached) to the Pro Se Office at least (10) ten business days after service of the moving papers, (4) four business days if you are responding to a discovery motion. REFER TO RULE 6 OF THE FEDERAL RULES OF CIVIL PROCEDURE (ATTACHED HERETO). YOU SHOULD ALSO REFER TO THE RULE REFERRED TO IN DEFENDANTS MOTION.<<<<<<<<<********>>>>>>>>>>>>> 2Page 2 8. You should also submit an extra courtesy copy to the Pro Se Office for forwarding directly to the Judge. Please write courtesy copy in the upper right corner of the extra copy for the Judge.9. If you need additional time to submit your opposition papers, try to obtain your adversarys consent. If possible, get their consent in writing. If the other side does not consent, you will need to write to the assigned judge to request an extension (also called enlargement) of time. You must request an extension of time before the deadline you are seeking to extend expires.Revised 6/2002<<<<<<<<<********>>>>>>>>>>>>> 3NOTE: This illustrates the FORM for an affidavit or affirmation in opposition to a motion.
