What is an Opposition To A Motion For Sanctions?
An opposition to a motion for sanctions requests that the court refuse to impose the requested sanctions. The opposition will seek to prove that the opposing party’s actions were made in good faith and did not violate any rules of court. The opposition will likely also argue that any violation was inadvertent, minor and caused no prejudice to the moving party. 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.
