This answer was rated:

Defendant had 4 days scheduled for a felony jury trial. This was marked as "date certain" and was not a backup. The judge later stated that she was unavailable on those dates and moved the trial a month and a half later.

The judge now has a full schedule on all 4 days including a 2 day divorce trial.

This seems suspicious since the prosecutor in the case actually had two trials scheduled with different judges on the original trial dates.

JD 1992 :

Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.

JD 1992 :

Is there a specific question I could assist you with? I have read your facts.

Customer:

I was just wondering if this is something that I should be concerned about or if I'm just being paranoid.

JD 1992 :

No, it's not unusual for courts to move cases around. They will bend over backwards to help the prosecution in scheduling but there is nothing that can be done about it.

Customer:

ok then.

JD 1992 :
