General
A motion is a request to the court for relief. A motion may be made in a pending matter, or in some cases may be served concurrently with a complaint. Motion practice is governed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and local rules in United States District Court, and by statutes, statewide civil rules and local rules in state court. Motions must comply with timing, form and content requirements. They usually are accompanied by briefs, memoranda of law or 'points and authorities' that set forth the facts and legal authorities on which the request for relief is based.
