I was the Plaintiff in a Court hearing requesting the judge

Customer Question

I was the Plaintiff in a Court hearing requesting the judge appoint a Receivership on a property I own with a partner.
The Receivership was denied and the judge set a conference date for all parties.
If I wish to drop the expensive litigation and let nature take its course, does the defendant have to consent?

After the defendant has answered, the defendant will have to consent to the dismissal. Most defendants will, but you do have to get their consent.Be careful, obviously I do not have all of the information on your case (and cannot give you specific advice on how to handle your matter, only a local attorney can), but if you have reached a point where you can no longer deal with your co-owner with this property, it may be necessary to go through litigation in order to resolve this - a receivership may not work, but there is such a thing as a "partition action" that may be possible in your litigation to help you dissolve the partnership and dissolve your property ownership.
