Legal Question

Asked on: 6/09/13, 7:44 pm

I recently won a case, by arbitration, in small claims court. The defendant (a large car dealership) did not show up. The Notice of Judgement says that the defendant may be given another hearing if he/she can offer a legitimate excuse for not showing up. It took 8 months to set up a hearing, and both parties had ample notice. If the defendant takes this course, how likely is it that he will be granted another hearing by the courts?
