Legal Question

Asked on: 3/04/13, 8:11 pm

Me, and my mother made a court appearance telephonically via CourtCall for an O.S.C. Hearing in Superior Court. My mom is the in pro per-plaintiff and I translated for her, cause she speaks no english. The judge got angry at me for translating, cause the judge thought that I was acting as an attorney. The judge then said that my mother is to appear in person at his courtroom the next day, so he can question my mother about her case.

My question is: Isn't it illegal for a Judge to communicate/talk to one party, without the other parties, opposing counsels there and for all other parties not having been notified prior about the next day's hearing?

2nd question: Isn't the court supposed to give days/weeks advanced notice (in writing) about a next/continued OSC hearing?
