Judge Leichty: Motions for Summary Judgment

Disputes about the admissibility or materiality of evidence at summary judgment must be raised in the parties’ briefs. A separate motion to strike must not be filed. 

The parties must meet and confer in good faith before filing any summary judgment motion to streamline the issues, to address choice of law, and to plan the efficient presentation of arguments. The movant must certify in the motion that the parties have so conferred, else the court may take remedial action.

In the anticipated event of crossmotions for summary judgment, the parties must propose a consolidated briefing schedule for the court’s approval before filing the motions.
