Can I not file a motion to reconsider the order and file my new evidence and other stuff thta i did not have time to collect for the triall hearing ?
You could, but it would likely be futile because you can't present new evidence at a motion for a new trial.But then why do people ask for a new trial ? Typically, are sworn affidavits of new witnesses supported by evidences showing that the Plaintiff has lied not a good reason to ask for a new trial ?To clarify, when I say new evidence, this is not necessarily new evidence in the sense of the motion for relief.What if the judge grants a rehearing ? Am I not allowed to come up with my affidavits and ask for a new trial at the rehearing ?
OKWhat if the judge grants a rehearing ? Am I not allowed to come up with my affidavits and ask for a new trial at the rehearing ?
and because they aren't part of the court record.What about if I file the affidavits with my motion to reconsider the order ?
Ok, but i am confused,,, if I file the affidavits with the motion, they will become part of the record ?
Ok, thanks for clarifying, but does the Court of Appellate not review the whole record ?
