Hi! Thanks for the question!
Firstly, yes it is possible. The cases may even reopen and proceed/resume after longer periods of time too if the court deems it fit. The most probable cause behind the constable with arrest warrant at your doors could be that you were unaware of the proceeds in the case by the opposite party and the court help you not present for the date, and thus warrants.
You, in that case, will have to establish a just cause for the delay and you can get the bail in the first stage if applied wisely. However, delaying any further or having the case appealed in higher court will make it very difficult. Give a just reason and your circumstances to get baila nd promise attendance further. Then fight the case as it proceeds.
If there is any other reason that comes to light, then you will have to provide more information on the same and then certain advises can be forwarded.
