You read the certification and submit a sworn certification in opposition to the motion. Use the same format....caption at top, form of certification, notarized, etc. Call yours CERTIFICATION IN OPPOSITION TO MOTION.. Serve a copy by mail on the defendant's attorney and the original with the court with the affidavit of mailing. Have a person other than you mail it and have him fill out an affidavit of mailing. Call the court clerk to see if you must appear on the date in the notice of motion specified or whether submitting the papers is sufficient.
That's exactly what the certification is for....to dispute and contradict as much of his certification that you disagree with so the court will deny his motion.
