Can I object to a judges ruling in eviction court?
Details: My husband is a defendant & former homeowner
Caught in an unlawful detainer
suit. We can't afford
a lawyers services so we discovered we could represent
ourselves. We learned very quickly that we had a right to
File a motion to "quash" the summons and complaint.
Since my husband is a sick man (end stage renal failure)
I did my due diligence and actually found 3 infractions
to point out in the motion- on the first day of hearing I showed
Up on behalf of my husband, as he was home recovering from dialysis- btw
I'm not listed as a defendant - needless to day I got chewed out for "practicing
Law without a license"...the judge then said m husband had to file
The Answer in 5 days. He didn't rule on merit so I decided to re-file the motion
and this time my husband showed up for the 2nd hearing-he asked the judge if in could stand with him and speak for him as he was feeling I'll and not versed in the
case- the judge said "no"- then the Plantiff's counsel filed in open court
a "motion to oppose"...we didn't have time to review it and my husband struggled to understand what he was reading/ he couldn't counter the details be ause
he wasn't familiar with the issues as I was. When the judge asked if anyone had any
questions they both said "no "- my husband did not know that he could
have "objected" and asked for more time, so the judge agreed with the Plantiff's motion to
Oppose; when I got a chance to read at home I was shocked at the discrepancies and
more than ever I would like another chance to fight back; can we? We were in court
this past Monday and the judge said we had 5 days to file ; does that gives until
Friday or Monday to file?
