The document supplied by the prosecutor's offense in response to a request from the defendant or defendant's legal counsel or by order of the court that contains all the pertinent factual information concerning the crime for which the person(s) are charged. The motion is usually made by the defendant's legal counsel to be used to prepare the case for the defense. It is also used in appellate actions by the court if there appears to be a violation of the defendant's civil rights or other matter that would have a bearing on the outcome of an original trial.
