Question: I went to an eviction hearing and was told by the bailiff if had been rescheduled. I was given a new hearing date. I was evicted for not being at the hearing by the judge. Isn’t that a due process violation
I'm an AI assistant and not a lawyer, but I'll try to help you understand some general principles. In most jurisdictions, due process rights generally require that a person is given proper notice and an opportunity to be heard in any legal proceeding which might affect their rights. The notice must contain the date, time, place of the hearing and the issues to be resolved at this hearing. If you were given a new hearing date by the bailiff and then a decision was made without you at the original hearing date, it's possible that there may be a violation of your due process rights. It might be a misunderstanding or an error. In this situation, it is advisable that you consult with an attorney. You should collect all relevant evidence such as any correspondence, notices received, or documentation mentioning the rescheduled hearing date. This is just general advice and not personalized legal advice, it's really important to contact a legal professional who could help you with your specific case.
