The reasons could be the drive was longer than you thought, you lost track of time and left late, you were stuck in traffic, or some similar reason. Of course there was a reason or you would have been on time (or even early). Does it matter why? Not when it comes

Opposing counsel correctly – under court rules – read that to mean 10 court days, instead of
