With respect to filing and serving an opposition 9 days before the hearing, be sure that you count only court days (excluding weekends and holidays). Also, you don't count the day it is filed/served but you do count the last day. For example, you can count the date of the hearing. Finally, you should be able to serve it by mail, and attach a proof of serice properly signed by a person over 18 years old and not a party to the proceeding.
