Expedited Hearing and Emergency Motions

MOTION FOR EXPEDITED HEARING AND EMERGENCY MOTIONS
 
Overview:

A motion for expedited hearing or an emergency motion is filed whenever movants, in order to avoid irreparable harm, need the requested relief in less time than is normally required by the Court to receive and consider a response. This motion must specify the reason(s) why expedited consideration is necessary and the motion for which you are seeking expedited consideration must be attached as an Exhibit. You should contact chambers prior to filing and all interested parties must be notified of the request by facsimile, e-mail, or other electronic means prior to the filing of the request for expedited hearing. The caption of the motion must state “Emergency Motion” or “Request for Expedited Consideration”.

The filing should be accompanied by the Motion, Certificate of Service and Proposed Order.
