The hearing is on two matters: a Stay of the case pending disposition of other matters, and a motion to impound an affidavit.I want to bring up the fact that the defense has filed their answer late…beyond my states standing orders time tracking.

Thank you. No, a party should not bring up nor go outside the scope of what the hearing is about and what is being argued. They can try but it could be objected to and the Judge is not likely going to hear something unrelated to the motion and purpose of the hearing, at that time.

Now, if defense counsel has filed their answer late, you can argue and use that if it is relevant to the matter/issue before the court at that time.
