Asked in Civil Litigation for New York

Q: How long after asking a court for dismissal, do defendants get to present their reasons for dismissal to the judge?

I have brought a civil court case to Supreme Court

i am trying to sue for damages.

The defendants have asked the court for dismissal, how long does the Defense get to present their reasons or evidence for dismissal to the judge?

The reasons for the Motions to dismiss are 1) the defendants didn’t get the summons the right way.

2) Some of the defendants (The Chairman & a Director) have proven minimal contacts in NY, other Directors have no contact with New York.

Documents relating to my complaint were falsely notarised/ certified in NY.

A: It is very hard to do a pro se case in Supreme Court, especially a complex commercial case. I am not even sure you commenced the case correctly, but if you did, they can move to dismiss without answering in the time to answer (which is counted differently depending on how service was made), or after the answer anytime.
