Re: Deferral or Discovery?
First of all, you are hijacking someone else's thread -- it's considered ill-bred. You should have started a new thread. The rule you're looking for is IRLJ 2.6 (a)(2). It states in part:
That's 21 calendar days, by the way. So, call the Clerk and make sure they have, indeed, received your response to the citation and ask them for the date they actually received it. If 21 days have gone by, send a letter to the court containing a motion to dismiss pursuant to IRLJ 2.6 (a)(2).
Quoting IRLJ 2.6 (a)
You may or may not receive an answer. If they subsequently do schedule your hearing without ruling on your motion, make the same motion at the hearing. Some courts will grant the motion, others won't -- they may claim you were not prejudiced by the delay.
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
