ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE HEARING IS VACATED, RESPONSIVE PLEADING HAVING BEEN FILED, CASE REMAINS ON CALENDAR FOR A NON-APPERANCE CASE MANAGEMENT REVIEW?
An Order to Show Cause is a motion (i.e., a request made to the Court for some type of relief) brought quickly by the party filing the motion. Motions require a certain amount of time for serving the other party with notice of intent to ask the court for relief. An Order to Show Cause expedites the process and notice is given as directed by the court. In a regular motion notice is given the other party before the motion is filed with the court. In an Order to Show Cause the court knows before you do. Here there was a hearing time set down on the issued raised. A Responsive Pleading is here an Answer to a Complaint. Were you being sued and failed to answer within the time frame allowed? The hearing on the issues raised in the motion was vacated and not held because the answer was filed. The case remains on the court calendar (their list of cases) for the court to look at and set up a case management schedule (a schedule of what has to be done and when it has to be done). If the answer was filed someone did so on your behalf. Contact them asap.
