Postponing summary judgment date
I am representing myself. The defendant has filed a motion for summary judgment/summary adjudication and the hearing is set for May, 6, 08.
I just received notice of jury duty. I have been scheduled for jury duty the week of May 5, 08. I can not postpone my jury trail again since I had already postponed it once before due to a death in the family. If I file a motion to continue summary judgment, have it served on the defendant by mail, and set a hearing date based on 30 calendar days + 5 days, the hearing to postpone summary judgment will take place after May 6, which is after the motion filled by the defendant.
How can I postpone the summary judgment on May 6, 2008?
Thank you for your advice and time.
