Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I filed a motion and was not aware that I had the option to set it for a hearing. I simply filed it with the clerk and gave a copy to the opposing attorney. He did call me and apologized for not having responded to my requests to confer on this issue. An attempt to confer and resolve prior to involving the court is required and I made several attempts.
Yes, I simply filed it and have been waiting for the Court to advise me of a ruling or a hearing date. I spoke with the Judge's law clerk and she said she did not find anything on it.
Hope that answers what you need to know.
Sorry I did not get back to you in a timely manner. The page I was on has been saying for hours that we were "waiting for expert".
When you suggest calling the court and speaking to the clerk, do you mean the county superior court clerk or the judge's law clerk? I have asked the county clerk's office and they advised they did not set the hearings although I can never be sure that the knuckel-heads who work there know what they are doing.
