Local Rule 9006. ORDERS SHORTENING TIME

(a) Affidavit in support of motion for order shortening time. Unless the court permits otherwise, every motion for an order shortening time must be accompanied by an affidavit explaining why an expedited hearing is required along with a copy of the motion for which an expedited hearing is sought and an "Attorney Information Sheet For Proposed Order Shortening Time," or similar statement indicating the following:

(1) Whether opposing counsel and other interested parties and persons were consulted regarding the proposed order shortening time;

(2) Whether opposing counsel or other persons consent to a hearing on shortened time;

(3) The date counsel or other persons were consulted;

(4) How the consultation was accomplished or, if counsel or other persons were not consulted, how the moving party attempted to consult with that person or persons;

(5) The estimated time for the hearing; and

(6) The date beyond which relief would no longer be necessary.

(b) Format of proposed order shortening time. Parties must include language in the proposed order shortening time so that the following can be easily inserted by the judge:

(1) The date and time for the hearing on the motion;

(2) The date for filing any objections to the motion;

(3) The date for filing any response to any objection; and

(4) The date by which service of the order shortening time will be completed.

(c) Deadlines where dates not specified. Where an order shortening time does not otherwise specify, any opposition must be filed no later than two (2) business days before the hearing, and any reply must be filed no later than one (1) business day before the hearing. Unless it otherwise provides, where an order shortening time is entered on less than three (3) business days' notice, a written opposition is not required.

(d) Submission of proposed order shortening time. A proposed order shortening time must be electronically submitted to the court's electronic order program in a format prescribed by the court that will allow the electronic entry of dates for hearing and deadlines and the signing of the order by the judge.

(e) Service of order shortening time. If the motion is granted, the notice of the entry of the order shortening time together with a copy of the motion must be served in the most expeditious manner possible (e.g., email, facsimile, or hand delivery) within one (1) business day after the order is entered, unless the court orders otherwise.
