Rule 56.03 - Procedures
(a) Supporting Factual Positions. A party asserting that there is no genuine issue as to any material fact must support the assertion by:
(1) citing to particular parts of materials in the record, including depositions, documents, electronically stored information, affidavits, stipulations (including those made for purposes of the motion only), admissions, interrogatory answers, or other materials: or
(2) showing that the materials cited do not establish the absence or presence of a genuine issue for trial, or that an adverse party cannot produce admissible evidence to support the fact.
(b) Objection That a Fact Is Not Supported by Admissible Evidence A party may object that the material cited to support or dispute a fact cannot be presented in a form that would be admissible in evidence.
(c) Materials Not Cited. The court need consider only the cited materials, but it may consider other materials in the record.

Advisory Committee Comment--1993 Amendments
The amendment to Rule 56.03is intended to make clear the relationship between this rule and Minn. Gen. R. Prac. 115.Rule 56.03includes a strict ten-day notice requirement before a summary judgment motion may be heard. This minimum notice period is mandatory unless waived by the parties. See McAllister v. Independent School District No. 306, 276 Minn. 549, 149 N.W.2d 81 (1967). The rule is intended to provide protection before claims or defenses are summarily determined by requiring a minimum of ten days' notice.
