We should discuss: If the court grants the motion to dismiss
, they have 10 days to correct their pleading or its dismissed. If the court denies the motion to dismiss, there is 10 days after the notice of the court’s decision to respond to the complaint (including filing any other claims).
The timeline related to Rule 12 Motions to Dismiss:
Service of pleadings and Rule 12 motions. A responsive pleading required under these rules, shall be served within twenty  days after service of the prior pleading. Unless the court specifies otherwise, a reply shall be served within twenty  days after entry of an order requiring it. The service of a motion permitted under Rule 12 alters the time for service of responsive pleadings as follows, unless a different time is fixed by the court:
(1) if the court does not grant the motion, the responsive pleading shall be served in ten  days after notice of the court’s action;
(2) if the court grants the motion and the corrective action is allowed to be taken, it shall be taken within ten  days, and the responsive pleading shall be served within ten  days thereafter.
I am unsure what this mean relative to my case. The dismiss motion was filed. No answer yet. Evict hearing is May 16th & the Counterclaim deadline is one week prior or B4 May 9th. Cannot understand the timeline above versus the scheduled Hearing date & how that affects my date to counterclaim if Judge denies dismissal motion???
