My ex’s attorney had the court calendar a motion that was not yet filed. I was served only through email, though the certificate of service says 1st class mail. He filed it 2 days after emailing me. It was finally confirmed when I went to the court today that there is in fact a court date, although I went to the court on 2/7 AND called the court on 2/8 and on both days they were unable to find the motion.
The court date was set three days before the motion was filed and stamped. Because of all the hassle, and the attorney emailing me multiple variations of the motion and multiple certificates of service over the course of two months, I have not had time to properly respond or file an answer.
Were there rules violated by calendaring a motion that has not yet been filed? Or for not properly serving? If so, what rules were violated?
