West’s Encyclopedia of American Law
In ruling on a motion for a continuance, a court examines all the facts and circumstances of a case—in particular, the applicant’s GOOD FAITH, the purpose and necessity for the postponement, the probable advantage that could result from the continuance, and the possibility of prejudice to the rights of other parties.
If there are multiple defendants in a case, a continuance granted to one of them postpones the trial of the case against all of them. A continuance is usually granted if requested by a defendant, since the plaintiff should have adequately prepared his or her case before commencing the action.
