102 THE ADVOCATE
102 V O L . 7 6 P A R T 1 J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 8 c. provide the parties’ submissions relevant to the request; and
d. include a recital of the exact relief sought by the parties and attach
a draft order.
MOTION RECORD, FURTHER INFORMATION, OR CASE MANAGEMENT
The court may, for any reason, require a formal motion record or further
information. For example, if any party opposes a request for interlocutory
relief, the moving party will be required to bring a formal motion. It is the
moving party’s obligation to confirm that the request is made on consent or
unopposed by all other parties. The court should not be expected to infer a
responding party’s position (e.g., from the absence of a response). Nor is it
the role of the court or registry to seek out the other party’s position. In a
case-managed proceeding, the court may require the moving party to requisition
a case management conference before bringing any motion.
REQUESTS THAT REQUIRE ADJOURNMENT OF A HEARING ON THE MERITS
If the interlocutory relief could affect the orderly hearing of a scheduled
matter, the court will require that a formal motion for adjournment be
made. Parties should refer to the Notice to the Profession related to adjournments
issued by the court on May 8, 2013.
