What is a Motion and How Does it Apply in Court?

Motions can be brought forward by either party and are used to move or ask the court to do something. Traditionally, they are used to remove, suppress, or get rid of evidence. For example, a pre-trial motion brought by the defense might be for a hearing to determine whether or not you were properly mirandized and if what you said while in custody of the police could be used against you or not. DUI Attorney, Jonathan Rands and Dilion Honcoop discuss the somewhat endless motions that could be brought by either the defense or the prosecution based on the facts of the case.
