My attorney filed a motion for rehearing & reconsideration

This answer was rated:

My attorney filed a motion for rehearing & reconsideration last Friday right on the 30 day limit date she told me to secure the 'date' because had she waited another day the motion probably would have been barred. She didn't send a notice to the opposing counsel. How long does she have to notice him?
Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies.

Can you please tell me which Judicial District Court this is in, i.e. "Nineteenth Judicial District Court," for example? Or at least what county this is?

The reason I ask is because the notice for motions may be in the local rules of the Court.
