Thurston County, Washington

Superior Court

Dispositive motions include motions for summary judgment (CR 56), motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted (CR 12(b)(6)) and motions for judgment on the pleadings (CR 12(c)). 

Each Judge will hear only two (2) Dispositive Motions per session.

If your notice schedules your motion on a session that is already full or canceled, the Clerk's Office will contact you to advise you to reschedule your motion.

Notices to strike motions must be filed as soon as the attorney/party is aware that the case will not be proceeding with the motion. If your notice to strike is filed within five (5) days of the hearing date, parties must comply with the Clerk's procedure regarding expedited fillings and the Court's rule regarding bench copies.
