Anybody have experience with adjournment requests in the 1st Dept App Division? We have a respondent’s brief due a week from Wednesday. This past we submitted an application for adjournment. I’ve convinced my partner that we have good cause (record issues that need a motion to resolve) but now I’m starting to get worried. Are adjournments usually granted?

They are granted all the time as a matter of course. Call the clerk, they are very busy with motion submissions and if you are looking at a deadline, they might help move it to top of pile.
