Going to court today. Got a text from the other party that they are sick and in the hospital. Knowing the other party very well and why she in the hospital I am pretty certain she is not too sick to come into court. What can I do to keep her from resetting this date?
You want to go in front of a judge and say that the other party is in the hospital but YOU think she's not that sick?
How do you think you will look to the judge?

It is probably too late to file a continuance and it would be inappropriate to simply call now. Just show up and show the judge the text. Let the judge decide what to do with the setting.

Show up and tell the judge why you think the case should go forward. The judge may reset the case anyway, but opposing now will keep something similar from happening next time. Don't be afraid the judge will get mad at you. You have the right to oppose the reset and the judge understands that.
This is not legal advice. You should always discuss the specifics of your issue in person with an attorney. Be aware that there are time limits on all claims that depend on the kind of claim, so do not delay in seeking an attorney.
