I am not a fan of the “motion within a motion” whereby a party in a motion for summary judgment files a motion to strike all or portions of the declarations submitted by the opposing party on the basis that the statements are not admissible into evidence. It is true that evidence submitted to support or oppose a motion for summary judgment must be admissible. ORCP 47D. However, the filing of a motion to strike creates a number of procedural problems – the time for response and reply to that motion will be separate from the briefing deadlines for the summary judgment motion; and depending on the court’s schedule there may not be time to address a motion to strike at the time scheduled for the summary judgment motion. It is sufficient if, in your response or reply, you simply state your evidentiary objections and include your argument as to why parts of the opponent’s evidence are not admissible in your response or reply brief.
