Generally for any motion for which we schedule a hearing, you will be given a briefing schedule at the time the motion is scheduled. Counsel may not stipulate between themselves to extend these deadlines without consulting the court.   Since I actually read the memoranda for the hearing, the briefing schedule is designed to allow me time to do so. Failure to comply with the briefing schedule may result in your hearing being delayed or canceled. If no hearing is scheduled, counsel should still consult with the court regarding any requested changes in the briefing schedule. If the motion is one which must be decided by a particular date (for example, before a trial), a delay in the briefing schedule may result in the court’s inability to decide the motion in a timely manner.
