By Noah Webster.
During a lawsuit, a request to the judge for a decision--called an order or ruling--to resolve procedural or other issues that come up during litigation. For example, after receiving hundreds of irrelevant interrogatories, a party might file a motion asking that the other side be ordered to stop engaging in unduly burdensome discovery. A motion can be made before, during or after trial. Typically, one party submits a written motion to the court, at which point the other party has the opportunity to file a written response. The court then often schedules a hearing at which each side delivers a short oral argument. The court then approves or denies the motion. Most motions cannot be appealed until the case is over.

To make a significant movement or gesture, as with the hand; to make proposals. See Move. Motion in court, an occasional application of the court, by the parties or their counsel, for the purpose of obtaining some rule or order of court which becomes necessary in the progress of a cause. Quantity of motion, the product of the mass or moving body by the velocity. Absolute motion, that which is independent of any other motion or retarding power. Angular motion, the motion of a body as referred to a centre about which it revolves. Accelerated motions, those which are continually increasing or diminishing in velocity, while equable motion continues uniform. Laws of motion, three axioms, which have been shown by Sir Isaac Newton, as follows:- (1) every body perseveres in its state of rest, or uniform motion in a straight line, until a change is effected by the agency of some external force; (2) any change effected in the quiescence or motion of a body, is in the direction of the force impressed, and is proportional to it in quantity; and (3) action and reaction are equal and in contrary directions.
By Nuttall, P.Austin.
The act of changing place. The various motions may be divided into, - First, the voluntary or those that are executed under the influence of the brain. Secondly, the involuntary, which may be subdivided into, 1. The excited, of the reflex function of Dr. Marshall Hall and others, - as the closure of the larynx on the contact of acrid vapours, of the pharynx on that of the food, - a function of the spinal marrow; and, 2. Those that are executed under the organic and other nerves of involuntary function. It is probable, too, that every living tissue is capable of moving responsive to its appropriate irritant. See Irritability.
