Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney. Usually, days are defined as Court calendar days, which is also business days. However, when it comes to answer periods, you count every day on the calendar and if the 10th day is a Saturday, Sunday or Holiday, then the due date is the next business day after. So, you would count the holiday when counting days but if the day of the holiday is the day its due, then you would have until the next day.

Let me know if you want to discuss the issues or you have any further questions.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
