What about the 20 days limit? does that pertain to my situation? the attorney filed the original motion 2 months ago. rules seem to say that he only has 20 days to amend? can i get the amendment thrown out due to this? if so, should i schedule this for a umc hearing. do you know what a umc hearing is where the judge has nonevedentiary 10
minute hearings? I
Thinking strategy . If I do a motion to strike, based on the 20 day rule only and the judge does not agree, I can then file a second motion to strike for sham, right? for both I can ask for UMC hearing. or can I put them both in the same motion to strike and if he does not agree to strike based on 20 days, I can then try the sham during the same meeting?
That being said, when I responded to this original motion (which limits them to 20 days for amendments) it was within another motion called "Verified motion to Quash deposition and for Protective Order" BUT within my motion, I asked the court to dismiss his motion and wrote the name of it specifically. Does that still count as a "response" within the law or does my response have to look or be titled a certain way?
Thank you so much for your help.
1. I am going to do a Motion to Strike based on the two items and ask for a hearing.
2. If I want to clarify that the motion I filed before should be considered the response to his initial motion, I can call the JA to clarify but if I put it in writing, what does a clarification to the court look like? Is the document set up like a motion and filed or a letter to the judge? Is there a sample one online you can direct me to? What would be the title?
3.I know I am supposed to have 10 days to respond to his last amended motion (the one I want to strike) and I guess I should submit a response and just deny the lies just to make sure I get it in under the deadline, right?
Again, thank you so much.
