Comments from Santa Clara County Judges on Law and Motion

From last night's Santa Clara County Bar Association seminar:

On motions: "Brevity is beautiful."

On ex parte motions: "Your procrastination is not our emergency."

On disputes between lawyers: The basic concept is, "Don't involve the court." [i.e., do your best to work things out]

On how to begin your motion: the first paragraph should tell the court why you are here and what you want the court to do.
