My court date is at Jan 14 2009. And I would like to reschedule it to another date. who can help me ? Please tell me the proper procedure how to do it.
The other option is to have someone attend the trial date to request an adjournment but you better have a good excuse at that point (some unforseen emergency) otherwise you should have filed the notice of motion in advance.
Call the court office and ask them what their procedure is. If you are in Toronto, the Court call center is 416-338-7320:
press 3 for "4860" tickets
press 4 for "4862" tickets or
press 5 for "4863" tickets
1. Ask for an adjournment in advance. Not being able to get time off work should be good enough. People routinely request adjournments because the trial conflicts with their vacation! The only bad thing is that someone has to show up at the court between now and Jan 14/09 to explain. Mention something like it is a special work project and you could loose your job. You are running out of time to do this!!!
2. Don't show up at trial. Here you need a solid excuse because the court will not tolerate why you didn't do option 1 above.

This is my story. I got a ticket of disobey stop sign at Jan 28 2008 6:06pm. I got the notice of trial officer on Oct 10 2008, and the date of the trial date at Jan 14 2009. My court location is at Markham. Due to the insurance issue, I reschedule my trial date at Jul 10 2009. I required a disclosure at Dec 10 2008 by fax and mail, and the follow up request at Apr 03 2009 by fax and Canpar. On May 5 2009 I pick up the disclosure, but it only contains a copy of the police officerÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s hand writing notes. This is totally unreadable.
- Should I resend another request for a typed version of hand written notes, or just waiting until the trial date and raise up for the incomplete disclosure issues?
- what is a good Strategy to win ?
thank you for reply
Now , should I request another disclosure of typed version ?
If they try to hand you the by-law or typed notes at the trial, don't accept it. You might also be able to file an application for a stay based on improper disclosure in advance of your second trial, but I can't be completely sure in the case of re-scheduled trials.
Thank you for your reply.
