suspending such deadlines.
(e) Oppositions to motions shall be filed and served within 5 business
days after the motion is served. Oppositions shall be limited to the
specific issues and allegations contained in the motion; when a motion
is incorporated in an answer to a complaint, the opposition to such
motion shall not address any issues presented in the answer that are
not also specifically raised in the motion. Failure to oppose any
motion may constitute grounds for granting the motion.
(f) No reply may be filed to an opposition to a motion, except under
direction of Commission staff.
