RULE 15
MOTIONS

What is a motion?

A motion is an application for relief other than by a pleading. (S1 R15) In a motion, you
are asking for another relief other than the main cause of action or the main defense.

1. The motion must be in writing except those made in open court or in the course of a
hearing or trial,

2. It should state the relief sought and the grounds for it and where required by the Rules
or necessary to prove facts alleged therein, shall be accompanied by supporting affidavits
and papers.

Requisites of a valid MOTION

Section 2 to Section 6

3. It should be set for hearing unless it is a non litigious motion or an ex parte motion. The
motion should be served in such manner as to ensure receipt by the other party at least
3 days before the hearing. ( 3 day notice requirement ) . The date of hearing must not be
later than 10 days from the date of filing of the motion .

4. It should contain a notice of hearing , which shall be addressed to all parties concerned
and shall specify the time and date of hearing.

5. If set for hearing there shall be proof of service.

The most important requirements are that the motion should be set for hearing and should
contain a notice of hearing. Without these, the motion is but a " mere SCRAP of paper."
To whom should the notice be addressed?

It is addressed to all parties concerned.

MOTION DAY

Except for motions requiring immediate action, all motions shall be scheduled for hearing
on Friday afternoons, or if Friday is a non-working day, in the afternoon of the next
working day.

Omnibus Motion Rule

Sec 8. A motion attacking a pleading, order, judgment, or proceeding shall include all
objections then available, and all objections not so included shall be deemed waived.
Cases

Llanto v. Ali Dimaporo, 16 SCRA 599 ( 1966)

Lack of previous notice of hearing of the motion to dismiss granted by the court, was fully
cured by the aggrieved party‘s motion for reconsideration which was overruled by the
court, ―and the previous objection of lack of notice or opportunity to be heard fully met.
What the law prohibits ―is not the absence of previous notice, but the absolute absence
thereof and lack of opportunity to be heard

Vlason Enterprise Corp v CA,

310 SCRA 26 ( 1999)

Service of a copy of a motion containing the time and place of hearing of that motion is a
mandatory requirement, and failure of the movants to comply with these requirements
renders their motions fatally defective.

However, there are exceptions to this rule where liberal construction has been allowed in
cases:
Tan v, CA, 295 SCRA 755 (1998)

Sec 5 of Rule 15 of the rules of court that the notice shall be directed to the parties
concerned and shall state the time and place for the hearing of motions are
mandatory.Petitioner failed to observe very elementary rules of procedure which is fatal
defect in case at bar.

1. Where a rigid application will result in a manifest failure or miscarriage of justice;


especially if a party successfully shows that the alleged defect in the questioned final and
executory judgment is not apparent on its face or from the recitals contained therein;

2. Where the interest of substantial justice will be served;

3. Where the resolution of the motion is addressed solely to the sound and judicious
discretion of the court; and

2|Page
4. Where the injustice to the adverse party is not commensurate to the degree of his
thoughtlessness in not complying with the procedure prescribed.

Kinds of Motions

LITIGIOUS - one which the court may not act upon without prejudicing the rights of the
adverse party.

NON-LITIGIOUS - one which the court may act upon without prejudicing the rights of
the adverse party.

LITIGIOUS MOTION
1. Motion for Reconsideration.
2. Motion to Dismiss.
3. Motion to declare defendant in Default.
4. Motion for Execution.

NON-LITIGIOUS MOTION
1. Motion for extension of time to file answer.
2.Motion for postponement.
3.Motion for extension of time to file record
on appeal.
4. Motion to set case for pre-trial.

(Motion to Dismiss)
(CAPTION)
MOTION TO DISMISS

COMES NOW the Respondent, _____________ Inc., through the undersigned


counsel, appearing especially and solely for this purpose, and to this
Honorable Court, most respectfully moves for the dismissal of the Complaint
on the following ground that THE HONORABLE COURT HAS NOT ACQUIRED
JURISDICTION OVER THE PERSON OF THE DEFENDING PARTY.

DISCUSSION

A cursory reading of the Summons and Return of Service would readily show
that the copies of the Summons dated 08 May 2001 and the Complaint and
its corresponding annexes were allegedly delivered and tendered upon the
Movant _____________ INC. through a certain Maria Clara alleged to be the
authorized personnel of Movant _____________ INC., Bacolod City on 29
August 2001. Copies of the said Summons and Return of Service that form
part of the records on the case are hereto pleaded as integral part of this
Motion;

Said service of Summons, however, constitutes an improper service of


summons amounting to lack of jurisdiction over the person of the herein
Movant Corporation _____________ INC. since the summons was improperly
served upon a person who is not one of those persons named or enumerated
in Section 11, Rule 14 of the 1997 Rules of Civil Procedure upon whom service
of summons shall be made;

The material provision on the service of summons provided for in Section 11


of Rule 14 of the 1997 Rules of Civil Procedure reads as follows:

"Section 11. Service upon domestic private juridical entity.- When the
defendant is a corporation, partnership or association organized under the
laws of the Philippines with a juridical personality, service may be made on
the president, managing partner, general manager, corporate secretary,
treasurer, or in-house counsel" (underscoring ours)

It bears no further emphasis that the service of the summons was done on a
person who is not included in the exclusive enumeration provided for under
the said Section, as service was done only on an alleged authorized personnel
of the Movant Corporation;

5|Page
This new revision of the Rules of Court for the service of summon is a clear
departure from the old rule as stated in Section 13, Rule 14 of the Rules of
Court which provided that:

"SECTION 13.Service upon private domestic corporation or partnership. - If


the defendant is a corporation organized under the laws of the Philippines or
a partnership duly registered, service may be made on the president,
manager, secretary, cashier, agent, or any of its directors."

It must be equally noted that the changes in the new rules are substantial
and not just general semantics as the new rules restricted the service of
summons on persons clearly enumerated therein. In effect, the new provision
makes it more specific and clear such that in the case of the word "manager",
it was made more precise and changed to "general manager", "secretary" to
"corporate secretary", and excluding therefrom agent and director;

The designation of persons or officers who are authorized to accept summons


for a domestic corporation or partnership is under the new rules, limited and
more clearly specified, departure from which is fatal to the validity of the
service of the summons and resulting in the failure of the court to acquire
jurisdiction over the person of the respondent corporation.

PRAYER

WHEREFORE, it is respectfully prayed that the Complaint with respect to the


Movant Corporation be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction over the person of
the defendant.

Other reliefs just and equitable are likewise prayed for.

MOTION TO AMEND INFORMATION

Amendment of information, formal vs substantial

The rule on amendment of an information is found under Section 14, Rule 110 of the
Rules of Court: A complaint or information may be amended, in form or in substance,
without leave of court, at anytime before the accused enters his plea. After the plea and
during the trial, a formal amendment may only be made with leave of court and when it can be
done without causing prejudice to the rights of the accused. However, any amendment before plea,
which downgrades the nature of the offense charged in or excludes any accused from the
complaint or information, can be made only upon motion by the prosecutor, with notice
to the offended party and with leave of court. The court shall state its reasons in resolving
the motion and copies of its order shall be furnished all parties, especially the offended
party. If it appears at any time before judgment that a mistake has been made in charging
the proper offense, the court shall dismiss the original complaint or information upon the
filing of a new one charging the proper offense in accordance with section 11, Rule 119,provided the
accused would not be placed in double jeopardy. The court may require the witnesses to give bail
for their appearance at the trial. In fine, before the accused enters a plea, a formal or
substantial amendment of the complaint or information may be made without leave of
court. After the entry of a plea, only a formal amendment maybe made but with leave of
court and only if it does not prejudice the rights of the accused.

After arraignment, a substantial amendment is proscribed except if the same is


beneficial to the accused.It must be clarified though that not all defects in an information
are curable by amendment prior to entryof plea. An information which is void ab initio
cannot be amended to obviate a ground for quashal. An amendment which operates to
vest jurisdiction upon the trial court is likewise impermissible. [Leviste vs. Alameda. G.R.
No. 182677, August 3,2010]

Substantial amendment of information, test

A substantial amendment consists of the recital of facts constituting the offense charged
and determinative of the jurisdiction of the court. All other matters are merely of form.The
following have been held to be mere formal amendments: (1) new allegations which relate
only to the range of the penalty that the court might impose in the event of conviction; (2)
an amendment which does not charge another offense different or distinct from that
charged in the original one; (3) additional allegations which do not alter the prosecution's
theory of the case so as to cause surprise to the accused and affect the form of defense
he has or will assume; (4) an amendment which does not adversely affect any substantial
right of the accused; and (5) an amendment that merely adds specifications to eliminate
vagueness in the information and not to introduce new and material facts, and merely
states with additional precision something which is already contained in the original information and
which adds nothing essential for conviction for the crime charged. The test as to whether
a defendant is prejudiced by the amendment is whether a defense under the information
as it originally stood would be available after the amendment is made, and whether any evidence
defendant might have would be equally applicable to the information in the one form as in

8|Page
the other. An amendment to an information which does not change the nature of the
crime alleged therein does not affect the essence of the offense or cause surprise or deprive
the accused of an opportunity to meet the new averment had each been held to be one of form and not
of substance. [Ricarze v. Court of Appeals, G.R. No. 160451, February 9, 2007,515 SCRA 302] More
importantly, reinvestigation is required in cases involving a substantial amendment of the
information. Due process of law demands that no substantial amendment of
an information may be admitted without conducting another or a new preliminary
investigation. In Matalam v. The 2nd Division of the Sandiganbayan, [G.R. No. 165751,
April 12, 2005] the Court ruled that a substantial amendment in an information entitles an
accused to another preliminary investigation, unless the amended information contains a
charge related to or is included in the original Information

MOTION TO LIFT WARRANT OF ARREST

ACCUSED, through counsel, respectfully moves for the lifting of the Order for
issuance of warrant for his arrest issued on June 24, 2014 (copy of which is hereto
attached as Annex "A") on the following grounds:

1. Accused was never served a copy of the complaint filed against him. The records will
show that he did not receive it nor was it received by a duly authorized rep. A copy
of the sheriff's return is hereto attached as Annex "B";

2. The records will show that the accused was never served any copy of a subpoena or
notice of hearing at any stage of the proceedings. All notices appear to have been
delivered in a business establishment used to be rented by the accused in the past
which had already been closed and unoccupied long before the process was served;

3. Accused was likewise not served a notice of arraignment;

4. Accused was therefore, not given an opportunity to be heard and effectively deprived

THE above-named child, through counsel, who hereby respectfully enters a

Honorable Court, invoking his special entitlement as a child under Philippine and
international law, respectfully moves for his release on recognizance, on the ground
that, to wit:

1. The child hereby respectfully applies for release on recognizance pursuant to the Rule
on Juveniles in Conflict with the Law [Administrative Memorandum No. 02-1-18-SC],
issued by the Honorable Supreme Court, providing for the following, thus, to wit:

motion and recommendation of the DSWD, release the juvenile on recognizance to
the custody of his parents or other responsible person."

36 | P a g e
2. This motion is also in line with Article 191 of Presidential Decree 603, otherwise known
as the Child and Youth Welfare Code, as amended, and Section 8 of the Rules and
Regulations on the Apprehension, Investigation, Prosecution and Rehabilitation of
Youth Offenders, mandating law enforcers to divert and turn over children at the
point of arrest to the custody of social workers and/or responsible members of the
community, and Section 8 of Republic Act 8369 or the Family Courts Act of 1997,
providing children with alternatives to imprisonment such as community continuum,
counseling, conflict resolution seminars, essay writing, apology, community service,
etc.;

3. The said child failed to post the required bail bond;

4. MRS. Name of Mother and/or other proposed custodian, mother of the said child,
residing at ____________________________________, Manila, is willing to take

required before this Honorable Court, pursuant to the herewith attached Affidavit of
Undertaking executed by her and marked as Annex A;

6. The pertinent provisions of the Family Courts Act of 1997 (Republic Act 8369),

the law;

7. The United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Administration of Juvenile Justice
(BeijingRules), specifically Article 13.1 thereof, provides:

"13. Detention Pending Trial.

13.1. Detention pending trial shall be used only as a measure of last resort and for the

detention should be undertaken by the state only as a measure of last resort and
only for the shortest possible period;

9. Both international human rights law and Philippine laws mandate the state to observe
the best interest of the child principle (UN Convention on the Rights of the Child) as
well as the principle of diversion enshrined under Section 8 of the Family Courts Act
of 1997 (RA 8369) and under Sections 4 (f-g) and Sections 20-24 of the Rule on
Juveniles in Conflict with the Law as well as Article 11, Section 11.1 to 11.4 of the
