Sure but what happens is that I really needed to know so I take action today. I will be missing work to do that. I need to do the most aceptable method by court so that my request is not deny. because the court, I feel wants to favor the other party
Thank you for your follow-up.I will respond but if you have additional follow-up concerns, I will get to them sometime in the afternoon.You would need to file a cross-motion seeking the ability to bring in an additional expert on your behalf. This is absolutely legal and permitted but the judge may deny the motion if he considers the current expert to be sufficient, so in your motion you would need to argue that you seek both a second opinion and a request that both opinions be taken together so as to avoid bias. The opposing counsel can also seek to block by also claiming that the current expert is sufficient.You do send a copy to the adversary because they are entitled to the motion review, the information on the expert so that they may potentially contest, and the right to appear at the motion for the contestation. Hope that helps.
