What is a "motion for continuous" in law
Asked Jun 30, 2008, 12:27 PM
I would like to know what it means when there is a "motion for continuous"? I called my attorney about an upcoming trial date on old unsecure credit card debt that had almost expired when I was sued by a colleciton agency. I was told I would have to pay for a mediatior and that the court would tell me the date. A motion for summary judgement was issued by my attorney because they could not come up with original records for anything other than something they threw together. Anyway I called my attorney since I had not heard anything and had already arranged to go to court my attorney's office has told me that the motion was filed and a new court date set which I do not know what it is yet... can someone please explain what this means and is a good thing or a bad thing for me in regards to the motion for continuous...
