In misdemeanor prosecutions inthe district court motions should ordinarily be made upon arraignment or duringthe course of trial, as appropriate. A written motion may be made prior totrial in  district court. With the consent of other parties and the districtcourt judge, a motion may be heard before trial. Upon trial de novo in superiorcourt, motions are subject to the provisions of G.S. 15A‑952, and exceptas provided in G.S. 15A‑135, no motion in superior court is prejudiced byany ruling upon, or a failure to make timely motion on, the subject in districtcourt.
