A: That's not a good sign because it indicates that the defendant's attorney is asking the court to make a determination that there is no triable issue of fact. The outcome of that is likely to be detrimental to your case, as attorneys don't generally file summary judgment motions to help the position of an opponent in court. Your attorney could explain to you the details of how the motion works, but the bottom line is that action is likely necessary to evaluate the basis of the motion and to determine if the motion can be challenged (if it is feasible and realistic to do so). Good luck
