My family's case has been going on for a year. Three siblings filed a partition lawsuit over jointly owned inherited property against two siblngs without discussion having taken place. Defendants have not contested the partition. Multiple appraisals have been obtained. Plaintiffs' attorney refuses to respond to the defendants' communications and questions about the planned process for sale. The judge has permitted settlement discussions to continue. With no discussion on the part of Plaintiffs' attorney, what will be the likely next step in the process? The process appears to have stalled. Defendants have not received notice from the court for the next status hearing.
