Without the information I asked for I can only give you a general answer but I hope this helps.

i am not sure what your question is.

I would imagine it has been adjourned probably because of reduced court time.

But obviously I will not know why this particular case wasn’t in court.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
