LVNV given a continuance

After waiting 6 weeks for court, someone other than a lawyer shows up and asks the judge for a continuance. It was granted. Why wasn't the case dismissed? They had six weeks to get ready! Is there anyway to appeal the continuance?

It is not uncommon for a continuance to be granted.  If a party has requested t multiple continuances and doesn’t have a good reason, eventually they’ll be denied.  But if this is a first request, it will usually be granted.

If you had requested a continuance, more than likely, the judge would have granted it.  And you’re preparing for only one lawsuit during that 6 weeks.   Chances are the lawyer for the plaintiff has more than one case during that time for which to prepare.  

No, you cannot appeal a continuance.  It’s not considered an appealable event.
