response times

response times

Postby Earl » Wed Apr 05, 2017 8:59 am

Again my civil litigation books fail me on a simple question.

When it states on the acknowledgement of service form the defence has 14 days to reply does this mean 14 working days or two weeks including weekends.
And I take it the answer to this will be the same for all filings and responses.
Thanks
Earl

I think that if it means working days then it would say working days.

Days. Full stop. If something is to be done 14 days after 1 January, the deadline is 15 January.
