I have a jury trial coming up for breach of contract and consumer fraud. Do I need to ask the judge to try them together?
Naperville, IL |
I am pro se and have a jury trial coming up for a breach of contract /consumer fraud case. I have read that consumer fraud is by judge and breach of contract is by jury. I have a jury trial date already. Do I need to write a motion to get them tried together or will that just happen?
Also I have about 17 jury instructions from "breach of contract " and "fraud". Is that too many?
This is a small claims case and I cannot really afford a lawyer. Please help.
