Q: I’m about to go to boot camp but I have a pending civil court case for a car accident. Will I be able to go to BC?

Does boot camp qualify the trial to be put on “stay” status?

A: A Texas attorney should advise, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you are able to consult with a Texas attorney with time looming, you could check with the judge's clerk on your case. Based on your description, it sounds like a note of issue has been filed and that you may be on the calendar. If in fact you are not represented, you should consider consulting with a Texas attorney on this because following your basic training, there could be other subsequent challenges in terms of your availability that you might not have control over, depending on where you are stationed. Good luck
