Meagher & Geer attorneys, Mark Bloomquist and Kathleen Ghreichi will introduce lawyers to the nuts and bolts of motion practice in the Minnesota Courts. They will discuss the process of conceiving, preparing, filing, and arguing motions and responses to motions. Topics include: types of motions typically brought: factual and legal research: structuring the memorandum of law; filing procedures and deadlines; preparation of affidavits and other supporting documents; and framing your request for relief. Also addressed are some key differences between state and federal motion practice as well as some useful pointers on what not to do.
