    Note: When filing a Motion - the Motion, Notice of Motion, and Proof of Service may be a single PDF; or the Notice, supporting documents, and Proof of Service may be added as an attachment to this event. The Motion must be the first document in your PDF. A Proposed Order must always be filed separately using the “Proposed Order” event.
