  • Does defendant have to respond to cross-motion after judge denies their motion

    JUDGE DENIED DEFENDANT'S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMEMT. PLAINTIFF RESPONDED AND CROSS-MOTIONED. THE DEFENDANTS STILL HAVE TO RESPOND TO CROSS-MOTION RIGHT?

    Matthew’s Answer

    The short answer is yes. The longer answer depends on a number of factors, including the basis on which the court denied the original motion and whether the cross-motion is premised on the same law and facts. Without knowing anything further, I think defendants would still be obliged to file a response or run the risk of the court ruling against them on the cross-motion.
