§ 6-1526. Summary Judgment Procedure.

   (A) Moving Party's Materials in Support of Motion. When a motion for summary judgment or partial summary judgment is filed, the moving party must simultaneously file with the clerk and serve on all parties of record:

   (1) an Evidence Index in Support listing all evidence to be offered in support of the motion for summary judgment; and

   (2) an Annotated Statement of Undisputed Facts setting forth concise, numbered paragraphs reciting each proposed material fact as to which the moving party contends there is no genuine dispute, annotated by pinpoint citation to the supporting evidence in the Evidence Index in Support.

   Failure to submit such a Statement may constitute grounds for denial of the motion.

   (B) Opposing Party's Materials in Opposition. Each party opposing a motion for summary judgment or partial summary judgment must file with the clerk and serve on all parties of record:

   (1) an Evidence Index in Opposition listing all evidence to be offered in opposition to the motion for summary judgment; and

   (2) an Annotated Statement of Disputed Facts setting forth concise, numbered paragraphs reciting each proposed material fact of the moving party as to which the opposing party contends there is a genuine dispute, annotated by pinpoint citation to the supporting evidence in the Evidence Index in Opposition.

   Failure to submit such a Statement may constitute grounds for sustaining the motion.

   (C) For purposes of this rule, where competing motions are filed, a party shall be considered as the moving party regarding a motion or motions asserted by that party and as an opposing party regarding a motion or motions asserted by another party.

   (D) The assigned judge is expected to schedule deadlines for compliance with this rule and the summary judgment statutes so as to ensure a fair opportunity for all parties to present their evidence. The judge may, in the judge's discretion, extend any deadline for compliance with any requirement under this rule.

   (E) The documents required by this rule shall not be included within a brief submitted on behalf of a party.
