What is a motion?

A motion is a formal request to a judge to make a ruling or take some other action during a lawsuit. A motion does not start a lawsuit. You can use a motion to bring a limited, contested issue in a case before the court for a decision.

Motions may be made in writing, or in person at a hearing with both sides present. You must follow important rules about timing, serving the other party, and other matters according to the Montana Rules of Civil Procedure.
