Case was not heard today
I was at my daughter's by 8 a.m. this morning to go with her to the county courthouse. We arrived about 8:30, and the case she brought up against her ex-spouse was second on the list to be heard. The Commissioner (pro tem) changed the order, so that her case was first.
Having approached the stand, she was told that the case could not be heard that day, so it would be continued. I could tell that my daughter was visibly upset or annoyed at the news. I know she just wants to get this next thing over-and-done-with.
The reason for continuance was cited as "conflict of interest." Nothing further was explained, but a new date and time was set for early next week.
My daughter looked up the name of this acting judge, and also found some documents from her case this year. This attorney actually worked on the case with the law firm, so had to recuse herself from presiding over this case.
I will go up again to be of support. This is what caring family does.
The worst part of it is seeing the other party. I want to throw up each time I do, among other things.
