Okay, I'm a new lawyer and I'm in a bit over my head procedurally. I have a party opponent who skipped a deposition and no amount of reaching out to his attorney results in any response. I have drafted a motion to compel his appearance and the accompanying attachments and am comfortable with that.
The problem is, we're now inside of 30 days to a scheduled arbitration hearing and there's little time to get this deposition done. I'm prepared to file an Ex Parte application for an order shortening time. But now I've got myself turned in knots trying to figure out what my application really is. Am I applying for an OST for hearing the motion (I can't wait a month for a hearing) or am I applying for an OST for notifying opposing counsel of the hearing or is it BOTH. If both, do I need to do 2 applications for 2 orders?
