counter claims and third party claims. It is about two weeks since I answered and now I realized that I could demand a jury trial. Can I ask now for a jury trail in a motion??
I am pro se, is it better to be with a jury or a judge?
You can file a demand for trial by jury. No one here can advise you as to what particular course of action to take in your particular case, especially since we know nothing about the facts or causes of action. Consider hiring an attorney, in order to present your counterclaims and your defenses in the best possible light.
You can file a demand for a jury trial, but there is no right to a jury trial in Chancery Court. Court may convene advisory jury, Court may allow jury to determine factual issues, but best bet is to get Chancery to send case to Law Division, wlhere you have the right to a jury trial.
