Unless you hire another attorney over the weekend, it's not going to be filed until Monday. Only the attorney and their staff can access and file using the electronic system. If you hired someone over the weekend, you could file an emergency petition and file the balance of the bankruptcy within 14 days.

This answer is offered for informational purposes only. It is not offered as, and does not constitute, legal advice. Laws vary widely from state to state. You should rely only on the advice given to you during a personal consultation by a local attorney who is thoroughly familiar with state laws and the area of practice in which your concern lies. In the event that you have follow up questions, please post them directly on this site. This does not create an attorney-client relationship. Thank You!
Even if you don't get your bankrupcy petition filed until Monday or later and can't stop the hearing itself, you can still include in your petition whatever debt this summary judgment hearing is based on, assuming it's a dischargeable contract claims and not an non-dischargeable intentional tort claim.
Disclaimer: Please note that this answer does not constitute legal advice, and should not be relied on, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it is impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.

I understand your concern and why you would like to avoid having the summary judgment entered against you. If you lawyer will be back tomorrow and you can reach him early in the morning, he may be able to file the petition electronically before the state court hearing takes place. If so, the judgment will be in violation of the automatic stay provisions of the bankruptcy code and could be stricken.
