Rule 2.6 Reporting of Procedures: (a) Pursuant to CRC §3.1310, notice is hereby given that the Court does not regularly provide for reporting or electronic recording of hearings on motions. Reporters are provided in these matters only by written request in accordance with Rule 1.8(c). Parties may, in the alternative, provide a Reporter that they have privately retained.

Rule 2.10 Application for Order Shortening Time and Ex Parte Orders: (a) All ex parte applications shall comply with CRC §3.1200-3.1207.  Ex parte matters are considered at 4:00 p.m. on Monday-Thursday and 1:30 p.m. on Fridays, and any day before a holiday wherein the Court is closed.  The moving papers must show that notification has been provided as required by CRC §3.1200-3.1207.  Counsel may appear in person or by phone, or may submit the papers as allowed in CRC §3.1207.  The requesting party must show that exigent circumstances will result unless the matter is heard ex parte.

(b)  An ex parte declaration shall contain the information as set forth in Declaration Re: Notice of Ex Parte Application for Orders and/or Orders Shortening Time (form LM.010).  Such declaration shall be filed and served with the moving papers.

(c)  Notice must be provided to opposing parties by 10:00 am the day before the requested hearing date.  All papers must be filed with the Court by 10:00 am on the day of the hearing.  All papers must be served on opposing parties at the earliest possible time.  Non-compliance with this rule may result in either a denial of the requested relief or placing the matter on a law and motion calendar (with or without an order shortening time) at the court’s discretion.

Rule 3.11 Late Papers: (a) No paper shall be rejected for filing on the ground that it was submitted for filing after the time set forth in these Rules.  Late filed papers shall be filed by the Clerk and shall be marked conspicuously as “Late Filed Document.”

(b) The Court may, in its discretion, refuse to consider late-filed papers or may impose sanctions, including monetary sanctions.  Where opposition papers are late or entirely omitted, no oral argument by the opposing party will be allowed unless the Court otherwise directs.  Relief from the operation of this rule must be sought from the Court by ex parte application or noticed motion and will be granted only upon a showing of good cause.  Such relief may also be conditioned upon payment of sanctions for noncompliance.
