    Rule 7(c)(1) of Utah Rules of Civil Proceedure states:
    "Memoranda required, exceptions, filing times. All motions, except uncontested or ex parte motions, shall be accompanied by a supporting memorandum. Within ten days after service of the motion and supporting memorandum, a party opposing the motion shall file a memorandum in opposition. Within five days after service of the memorandum in opposition, the moving party may file a reply memorandum, which shall be limited to rebuttal of matters raised in the memorandum in opposition. No other memoranda will be considered without leave of court. A party may attach a proposed order to its initial memorandum."

    If I filed a Motion to Dismiss with the court, would I be safe to interpret this rule as saying the other party has 10 days to contest?
    If so, is that 10 business days, or 10 calendar days?

    Thanks
