Practice Direction 7.2(5) is corrected. The words moving party are deleted and replaced by responding party and the words notice of motion are deleted and replaced by motion response (Form 6). It now reads as follows: In all other cases, the responding party must serve and file a motion response (Form 6) together with any supporting material upon which the party intends to rely at least five business days before the hearing of the motion.
