Why does my case keep getting adjourned when it's scheduled for trial?
A: There are 4 primary reasons why your case may be pushed back:
No jurors available
No judges available
The attorneys have a scheduling problem
The experts have a scheduling problem
Those are the four basic reasons why your case may be adjourned even though your attorney told you that your scheduled trial date was definite. Another important reason is that the defense wants an opportunity to conference your case with their principals to determine whether to engage in settlement negotiations with you.
