Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Under the rules of court and practice, if a party files a motion of any kind, if they do not appear to argue their motion the court has the discretion to dismiss the motion or to continue it if the party requests so. The reason being is that the court finds that if someone files anything in the court and does not show up or ask for a continuance they do not want to prosecute the matter any longer. Your recourse is to refile your motion and you need to show up at that time.
