Form 7. Defendant's Request for a Documentary Hearing
Case No.
Defendant's name:
State in detail why attending a civil traffic/ civil boating/ civil marijuana/ parking or standing hearing would be a substantial hardship. A substantial hardship is more than mere inconvenience. Examples of substantial hardship may include residing a considerable distance from the court or having a medical or physical condition that significantly impairs your ability to participate in a hearing.
If the court grants my request and conducts a documentary hearing, I waive the following rights: to personally appear to present evidence; to review evidence before the hearing (Rule 13(b)); to compel production of any citing officer notes (Rule 13(c)); to testimony under oath (Rule 16(a)); to cross examine the State's witnesses (Rule 16(c)); to present rebuttal evidence Rule 19(d)); to present a closing argument Rule 19(e)); and to immediate delivery of written notice of appeal after the imposition of any civil sanction or penalty (Rule 25(a)).
I acknowledge that if the court does not receive my declaration of the facts by the hearing date, a default judgment may be entered against me, a civil sanction or penalty may be imposed, the Department of Transportation may refuse to renew the registration of a vehicle of which I am the registered owner, and my case may be sent to collections.
