I sent a letter to a judge requesting a reconsideration hearing.

Asked over 2 years ago - Waldorf, MD

I just received a memorandum stating that a copy of my letter was sent to the States attorney office and a copy to the public defenders office. It was from the judges admin assistant. It says to them "attached you will find a copy of Marquis (me) letter regarding the above case. (The one I am attempting to get a reconsideration on) please handle and respond accordingly"
Does this mean I will get a court date or that my request was denied. Note that the initial case was 2 years ago.
