Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
It is likely that no lawsuit has yet been filed. In that case, it will be impossible to look up the case online because there is no public record of it. The status of your friend's case should come from his attorney. The attorney has an ethical responsibility to respond to client communications and inquiries in a timely manner. Attorneys can be disciplined by the state bar for failing to do so.
The best course of action in this circumstance is therefore to send the attorney a letter via certified mail inquiring about the status of your case and documenting your previous efforts to contact them. If they still do not respond to this, you can send another certified letter warning that you will file a complaint with the state bar. And if they still don't respond, which at this point would be extremely unlikely, you can actually file a complaint with the state bar. The attorney will likely face discipline in that circumstance.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
