TMcJD :

Hi, I will be happy to assist you, and it is my goal to make you a very satisfied customer! This may take a few minutes, so thanks for your patience.

Customer:

ok

TMcJD :

Yes, formally what you file is a response to a motion for summary judgment. They could now file a reply to your response. But it's not common to submit such a reply unless your response raises arguments they didn't already address with their initial motion.

TMcJD :

But they would need to have that done (usu. within 5 days of the hearing date). If they can't get it filed in time, then they would need to ask the court to continue the hearing date to a future date so they get more time.

Customer:

all arguments have been addressed that was prev argued

Customer:

ok thanks
