In Florida, What is the Time Limit to Set a Hearing on a Motion to Dismiss or on Any Other Motion in a Civil Action?

Question:
In Florida, What is the Time Limit to Set a Hearing on a Motion to Dismiss or on Any Other Motion in a Civil Action?

If a Pro Se Defendant files a Motion to Dismiss; or if either Party files any other Motion in a Civil Action, what is the time limit from when the Motion is filed to the time that a Hearing must be set by either Party on the Motion before it becomes invalid? Furthermore, is the answer to this question stated anywhere in the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure?

I agree with some of the other commentators on this question. There is no real time limit to call up Motion to Dismiss. Even though the Defendant filed it, I would suggest that it be called up for hearing regardless of whom filed the same. If not, the case will just sit out there in perpetuity and will eventually be dismissed for lack of prosecution.
