Anyway, the Honorable Fourth District Court of Appeal granted my motion for an extension of time, which I'll include (again) below for your reference as well as a screenshot of their order granting me the 15 day extension to file the initial appellate brief. Onwards and upwards I guess.
I mean, it also confers some sort of weird bragging rights I guess in that I can tease my lawyer friends and say, "oh yeah, I've had motions granted at the lower court and the higher court and I'm not even a lawyer and have never taken single law class in my life." I guess I might also be able to say that I was also "jailed on contempt," though I sincerely hope I avoid that fate and am definitely not looking to have those sort of bragging rights whatsoever. Anyway, the crazy train keeps rolling.
EMERGENCY MOTION FOR AN EXTENSION OF TIME:
