A Response or Reply to the Opposing Party’s Pleadings is your answer to the opposing party’s document filed with the Court. A Response is the initial answering document to a motion while a Reply is the Response filed to a Response. A Motion, Response, and Reply are connected steps in a series of pleadings with the court. For example:
If: Party “A” files a Motion,
Next: Party “B” files a Response to the Motion,
Last: Party “A” may file a Reply to Party “B’s” Response.
A Response will address the Motion and provide the party’s position on the points raised in the Motion. This can include a rebuttal to issues of fact or law raised in the Motion. A Reply will address the points raised in the Response and provide the party’s position on the points raised in the Response. This can include a rebuttal to issues of fact or law raised in the Response. A Reply should only address points raised in the Response. A Reply is not a place to reargue the points made in the original Motion or to raise new issues. There are strict timing requirements as to when a Response or Reply may be filed. Failure to meet those timing requirements may result in the Court granting the opposing party’s motion and/or requests by default.
