My question involves court procedures for the state of: Mississippi
I am a pro se plaintiff in a circuit court case. The defendant is also pro se. Defendant filed a motion for summary judgment. In the response, I asked for oral arguments. The hearing was put on the docket 60 days out and was supposed to take place next week. Today, the judge's assistant emailed saying she has removed it from the docket, because she was informed only the one filing the motion is allowed to request oral arguments. This was news to me, as I could not find this in the rules.
In the motion, defendant is claiming lack of jurisdiction. I need a ruling on this, as the statute of limitations for the action is creeping up. My question is: What is the best way to nudge the judge to rule soon?
Thanks in advance.
