Rule CV-1. Motions and Special Matters--Non-Criminal Matters
A. Submission upon Memorandum. All motions shall be in accordance with Rule 7.1(a), Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure, and shall be deemed submitted upon memoranda unless the motion or response contains in the caption the words “oral argument requested”. Oral argument on all motions shall be limited to ten (10) minutes for each side, unless additional time is requested by any party and granted by the court. Motions for which oral argument has not been requested will be considered for decision upon expiration of the time prescribed for filing of a reply. The fact that either party has requested oral argument upon the motion, or that the motion has been set down for oral argument by the court shall not in any way relieve the parties from the filing of written memoranda required by Rule 7.1(a), Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure.
B. Motions to Compel or for Relief Under Ariz. R. Civ. P. 26(d). When a motion for an order compelling discovery is brought pursuant to Rule 37(a), Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure, or in connection with an expedited discovery dispute proceeding under Rule 26(d), Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure, the party requesting relief shall set forth, separately from any memoranda of law or Rule 26(d) joint statement, and in distinct, numbered paragraphs, the following:
(1) the question propounded, the interrogatory submitted, the designation requested, or the inspection requested;
(2) the answer, designation, or response received; and
(3) the reason(s) why said answer, designation, or response is deficient.
The foregoing requirement shall not apply where there has been a complete and total failure to respond to a discovery request or set of discovery requests.
Counsel and/or the party seeking relief, in the separate statement of moving counsel, shall specify the particulars of the personal consultation, or efforts towards personal communication if such personal consultation did not occur, in support of any request for attorney's fees as a sanction.
