Defense continues yet again
Is there a limit on how many times a defense can keep continuing the case?  Been continued 4 times now and now going on a year since the first one.  They shouldn't have anything to be waiting on, we've done IME and DME and have MMI.  My attorney says they have yet to produce the DME to her and this happened months ago.  Attorney did mention she was going to put a time limit on when they need to get her the DME report as she does not know why they are withholding it.  I know it's a long process, but I can see why people give up.
the court controls it's own calendar and can limit either parties request to postpone or reschedule a hearing.
either party can file an objection to a request to reschedule or cancel a hearing.
yes, legal delays are are common and a strong incentive to settle.
