We filed a Motion to Dismiss our case in NJ. The plaintiffs failed to comply with an order compelling discovery and failed to comply with an order to replace counsel after 30 days.
Am I interpreting this correctly? That under Rule 1:6 they have to file an opposition to the motion to dismiss within 8 days before the return date? If I am correct, does that mean dismissal is automatic if they don't oppose it? What if they file an opposition 2 days before?
The moving party's brief in support of a motion shall, pursuant to R. 1:6-3, be served and submitted to the court with the moving papers. The respondent shall serve and submit an answering brief at least 8 days before the return date. A reply brief, if any, shall be served and submitted at least 4 days before the return datI ask a question in California and get 10 answers. NJ? Crickets!
