My question involves court procedures for the state of: Texas, Federal Court
Every motion must have a statement that the movant has conferred with opposing counsel?
FRCP Rule 7 did not mention this? Our local LR7.1 D has statements:
Except for motions under Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 12(b), (c),
(e), or (f) and 56, contain an averment that
(1) The movant has conferred with the respondent and
(2) Counsel cannot agree about the disposition of the motion
Based on LR7.1 D, Whenever I file a motion, I need to confer with Defendant? When Defendant file a motion, it does not include this statement. Of many motions filed, Defendant only confer with me once about the motion it going to file.
