I did not list her on my witness list on the Consolidated Pretrial Order. I believe that is a done deal and I cannot amend it. Correct me if I am wrong.
There is a possibility she will not show up as she has multiple sclerosis, is agoraphobic, passive aggressive, and uses her MS as an excuse to no-show. (She canceled the last mediation date the morning it was scheduled).
The Consolidated Scheduling Order states: " This case will/may be specially set by the Court some time after July 16." So I assume there will be no further opportunity to ask the Judge anything regarding her appearance.
Considering; do you feel not issuing a subpoena would be a mistake on my part? (Hope my question is not too specific)
