Request or Motion?
An attorney submitted a proposed order in August, intending to prod the judge who had not acted on a motion in the case. Apparently, the judge had overlooked the Notice of Electronic Filing (NEF) received on the motion. And since the attorney filed his motion as a request,
the motion did not show on any motions reports. The motions reports are used in chambers to find motions that are pending and ready for decision. If a motion is filed as a request or application it will not appear on motions reports.
In this case, the email to chambers rescued the motion from oblivion.
