Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. I am a New Jersey attorney and one of my practice areas includes landlord-tenant. It's pretty rare for a judge to just decide to postpone a summary judgment motion so I am guessing there is more to this. Did the Court contact you, or only opposing counsel? If it was only opposing counsel, my guess is the attorney sought a postponement for some reason, possibly for being overbooked, and the Court granted the postponement and asked him to notify you. This happens all of the time so I wouldn't worry about it. As for the motion to compel, that would get postponed too so the Judge can handle them both together. So my assumption is that got carried over as well and not that the "judge has not made up his mind."
If you give me the name of the case, I can access the court database and let you know what is says for a status on each motion.
I hope this is helpful. Please provide a rating so I receive credit for promptly responding to you. Also, feel free to ask follow up questions. Thanks!
