Business Court Rule 15.12, which is titled "Determination Of Discovery Motions Through Oral Argument Without Briefs" states that "with the consent of both parties and as allowed by the Court, the parties may present motions and the Court may resolve disputes regarding discovery matters through the use of an expedited oral argument procedure. Such motions will routinely be limited to matters which can be argued and determined in one hour or less."

The Court will not consider the use of this expedited procedure without the consent of the non-moving party, as required by the language of the Rule.

In Hilb, the Court struck the Motion to Compel filed by the Plaintiff because consent had not been obtained.
