MOTIONS


Motions is nothing more then asking the court to do something. You can motion anything and you should motion for dismissal as often as possible.

You may aggravate the court by making endless motions but who cares. The court can not grant a request unless you make it.

Experience has shown that most laymen like yourself don't know when to make a motion and as such never make motions for fear of being made a fool of. Motion whenever you see an opportunity and your constant motion should be for either dismissal or that the evidence is inadmissible as to foundation, judicial notice or some other reason.

Motions as to inadmissibility of evidence:
