Legal Question

Asked on: 2/09/11, 9:00 am

In 2007, my commercial jewelry store suffered damagaes resulting from a fire in the commercial gun store/target range next door. After months of negoiating with the insurance companies, we hired an attorney to file a product liability suit. However, the attorney "sat" on the file for 2 1/2 years returning it to us with no work product and past the statue of limitations. I filed a request for judgment due to errors and omissions, which the opposing attorney answered with a Defendants Demurrer, to which I responded. However, now the attorney has called us and advised us that he intends to ignore this lawsuit. My questions is what can I now file to get a hearing date in front of a judge or to force the hand of the defendant to respond. Can he legally ignore this suit.
