This week I had a motor vehicle accident case scheduled to go to trial. Unfortunately, for the second time, the court either did not have enough judges and/or jurors so the trial has been delayed once again. The chances of the case proceeding to trial on its newly scheduled date are slim. Hence, do not be at all surprised if you and your attorney(s) need to go to court more than a few times before you actually have your case presented in front of an actual jury.
Courts in Massachusetts are financially limited and this impacts everything, including trial dates, so be prepared for potentially many, many delays of your trial.
