If the motion hasn't been heard it is possible that it has been abandoned.
But, if it hasn't been abandoned, you can't really force it to be called up as that would be the moving party's obligation. If the party never calls it up, it will die on the vine.
One possible thing you could do is file a motion to strike the other motion from the record and that would allow you to bring attention to the motion on your own. The other party could then respond by either telling the judge that he wants to move forward with the motion, or that he wants to dismiss it.
hello, im in the process of amending my complaint in a year long federal lawsuit. I n between the time i filed the first complaint and now, found that the government is a proper defendant . However in order to comply with the provisions of 28 U.S.C.27§ 2675, as required for their claims under 18 U.S.C. § 2712, do i have to wait to include them ? or can i include them now so i dont have to write a new amended complaint later, or can i list them here but not formerly sue them until the proper time? thank you.
thank you very much
