The court encourages the parties to work out discovery disputes and discourages the filing of discovery motions. Prior to the filing of a discovery motion, the parties must confer in an attempt to resolve the dispute. See Local Rule 37.2
. Virtually all discovery motions are ruled upon at the motion call without the taking of further briefs. Both sides must be prepared to address the issues involved. The motion must contain all pertinent documents. For example, a motion to compel the production of documents must contain the pertinent document request and the responding party's objection or other response to the document request. If there was no response to the request, that should be clearly stated in the motion.
