A motion for continuance and for discovery is likely a good idea, although it is impossible to say for sure since I do not know the specifics of your case. Even if the court denies the motion, you previewed the your need of more information to the Judge.
The official court rules governing continuances and discovery are available for free online here: http://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/colorado/ Navigate to Court rules on the left, then open the Rules of Civil Procedure. Continuances are governed by Rule 6 and discovery rules are under Chapter 4. Also, there are likely local court rules as well as a special procedures order in your case that supplement these rules, and you should find those.
To determine whether you can get discovery in your case, which you asked on your other question, read the rules, read all of the court orders in your case. Then making a motion to the court, requesting that discovery be permitted, is a good way to go, speaking in the abstract.
If the court grants your motion for discovery, then the landlord will probably be forced to answer your interrogatories or requests for admissions or other discovery tools.
You can request a continuance and a motion to compel the Plaintiff to produce the documents. It is totally up to the judge to decide as to whether to grant it or not.

Maybe -- I agree with my colleagues, however, as no one can give you a definitive yes or no without knowing your case!!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
