Your lawyer knows all of the particulars of the case, so any answer you get from this web site will not be as good as the information your lawyer can provide. You might want to ask your lawyer if he/she can file a motion called, "Motion to Dismiss for Failure to Prosecute."

Again, I don't know enough to really advise you. Trust your lawyer. He/she is a professional and is probably doing a good job. Also remember that defense attorneys do not run the court system. They don't call the cases to court and they are at the mercy of the prosecution who does call the cases to court.
