An opposition to a motion for summary judgment requests that the court decline to adjudicate the claims at issue. The opposition must present facts and supporting evidence to show that there are issues of material fact that are in dispute. In most jurisdictions, an opposition to a motion for summary judgment is required to present evidence, mere assertions are insufficient, to show a material issue of fact for trial. Opposition papers are usually supported by a statement of facts, a legal brief or memorandum with citations to legal authority, and if necessary, exhibits, declarations, and affidavits.
