Dockets.Justia.com 12. DISPOSITIVE MOTIONS. The Court considers dispositive motions, particularly summary judgment motions, to be appropriate methods for pretrial resolution of claims or defenses, or portions thereof, that do not contain disputed material facts, thus reducing the triable issues. In order to ensure that these issues are presented in sufficient time for the Court to reach a decision prior to trial, the parties shall identify those claims or defenses that do not require a trial in a properly-supported dispositive motion, filed not later than June 1, 2011. In submitting exhibits, the parties are reminded of Local Rules 5.5(b) and (c), which provide that only relevant portions of deposition transcripts or other discovery materials shall be filed in support of or in opposition to a motion. Evidentiary submissions that do not comport with these requirements may be disregarded. DONE and ORDERED this the 14th day of March, 2011. s/ WILLIAM E. CASSADY UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE -2-
