Ex parte motions to shorten time may not be granted except upon an unsworn declaration under penalty of perjury or affidavit of counsel describing the circumstances claimed to constitute good cause and justify shortening of time. If a motion to shorten time is granted, it must be served upon all parties promptly. An order which shortens the notice of a hearing to less than 10 days may not be served by mail. In no event may the notice of the hearing of a motion be shortened to less than 1 full judicial day. A courtesy copy shall be delivered by the movant to the appropriate department, if a motion is filed on an order shortening time and noticed on less than 10 days’ notice.
