Is this permissible if the plaintiff is pro se?
That is a judgment call ( no pun intended) by the court, either the trial judge is he is know or the civil assignment judge? Are you looking for an attorney or are you looking to oppose the application? The attorney and party he is attempting to represent have to get the o.k. from the court knowing it court result in a delay of the trial. If you have an attorney then please address this question to him.
