Q: Why did my son get a hearing notice to attend court when you said he did not need to for a traffic infraction?
He does not need to attend. All hearing notices state the defendant must attend even if attendance is not required when a person has an attorney for a traffic infraction. It is a liability reason for the court because clerks produces hearing notices for thousands of cases a year. Standard language erring on the side of caution ensures there are no notice mistakes in the cases attendance by the defendant at a hearing is mandatory ie. Criminal cases or a select few circumstances with severe traffic infractions.
