In a nut shell, a Motion is a pleading that is filed by the Defendant or his attorney requesting that the Court do something in particular that is contained in the motion. An example would be a Motion to Dismiss. This would be a motion filed by the Defendant asking the Court to dismiss his/her case. I hope this has helped you.
