Good Grounds for a Continuance

I assume Florida law is more or less similar to Nevada law on asking for a continuance (pushing back the date) of a trial. Basically, you ask the judge really nice, and if the judge thinks you're being reasonable and not just trying to screw with your opponent, he or she will say that's fine.

That being the case, check out this story about a very special request for a continuance in a Florida trial. Heh, I thought Nevada lawyers were sloppy.
