Legal Question

Asked on: 3/05/12, 11:13 am


I am a pro se litigant who has filed a Motion fro Summary Judgment. The return date was scheduled for March 8th 2012. The plaintiff retained a new counsel who asked for an adjournment stating they did not have enough time to prepare response papers. I objected as the plaintiff has changed lawyers twice so far. The previous lawyer withdrew due to nonpayment of fees. Second lawyer suggested the plaintiff pay and settle. Plaintiff did not like this so hired a third lawyer.

How many adjournments will the judge allow a plaintiff to have? What if he keeps finding cheap lawyers to represent him? What are my options?
