"The Court has been equally concerned where court time has been sought and then squandered.  The concept of proportionality has to apply in the context of litigants' use of court time as well as to the expenditure of their funds.   It is unfair to all users of the court where one party seeks far more court time than they should need because they are not prepared to do the work to streamline their motion.  Court intervention should be reserved for situations where the parties are unable to resolve their differences inter se.   If they expend no effort in resolution but simply present the court with their problems, we will soon find we are unable to provide our services in a timely fashion."
