If the plaintiff does not file anything with the court for a period of 10 months, you can file a notice of lack of prosecution. Then, if the plaintiff still does not file anything in the following 60 days, you can file a motion to dismiss for lack of prosecution. Other than that, there is no time limit for a case to proceed once a complaint and answer have been filed. However, if you want to push the case to trial, you can file a Notice for Trial letting the court know that you are ready for trial and asking that the case be put on a trial docket.
