Rule 6. Motions.
(a) All motions or application for orders in civil or criminal cases must be made in writing as required by Rule 9 of the Montana Justice and City Court Rules of Civil Procedure. This rule does not apply to motions made during the progress of a trial.
(b) At the time of filing the motion, there shall be filed supporting affidavits or documents, if referred to in the motion or notice of motion.

Failure to file an answer brief by the adverse party within ten days shall be deemed an admission that the motion is well taken. Reply briefs are optional and failure to file will not subject a motion to summary ruling.
(d) The court may order oral argument on the motion.
(e) Unless oral argument is ordered, or unless the time is enlarged by the court, the motion is deemed submitted at the expiration of the applicable time limits.
(f) The requirement of a brief is fulfilled by a written statement or summary setting forth the facts and basis of the motion. The brief may be made a part of or attached to the motion.
