10. Responses to motions or other requests

  1. Response or opposition to a motion or request filed separately from a party’s prehearing exchange.
    Unless the applicable regulations state otherwise, an opposing party will have 20 days from the date of filing to submit any statement or additional evidence in response to a motion.  An opposing party will have 30 days to respond to a motion for summary judgment (CRDP § 19(a)), unless the ALJ orders otherwise.  Parties should be aware that certain regulations require a response be filed within 10 days from the date a motion or request is filed.  The parties are responsible for knowing the regulations applicable to their case and cannot cite this section of the CRDP as a basis for not complying with the deadlines that those applicable regulations may establish.
  2. Response or opposition to a motion or request filed with a party’s prehearing exchange
    If a party files a motion, request, or objection simultaneously with its prehearing exchange, then the non-moving party’s response will be due at the same time its prehearing exchange or reply is due, as set forth in the ALJ’s prehearing order or other scheduling order.
