The statement under oath by Bland is used as evidence and proof that Walsh was not at the rape incidents. 3. How should the court rule on Bert’s motion to continue regarding Mook? Bert files a motion to continue since Mook, who is his alibi, is out of the country on a mountain climbing trip and cannot be contacted for two months. It is not unreasonable for the court to grant Bert’s motion for continuance for sixty days until Mook gets back in the country. Therefore the motion to rule a continuance should be granted.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
