Asked in Court Procedure
If a plaintiff doesnt arrive for the court date can the defendant move the court to remove the case from the court calendar?

The judge has the option of dismissing the case, but they
usually defer to the prosecutor and grant another hearing so that
the prosecutor (or law enforcement) can look into why the
complainant failed to show - just in case there was any foul play
