Re: Hearing on a Motion
that is an issue that has to be addressed in your first response. It would appear by all the various activities you have accepted the court as having jurisdiction.
ManOfManyQuestions;629446]The appeal will be based around the fact that the circuit court of virginia does not have personal jurisdiction to hear the case, in as much the motion to quash was based around this.
No. They failed to hear your motion because you failed to attend the hearing. Being pro se has no bearing on the issue and there shouldn't be a problem with being known as John Doe, if you address it properly.
The circuit court judge failed to hear our motion due to the fact that we were john doe and also pro se.
fine and dandy but that is a different issue than objecting to jurisdiction or arguing you were treated unfairly because you didn't attend a hearing. I don't know the rules of the court involved but if you believe there should have been a ruling on your jurisdiction issue without a hearing, that is what you need to attack but again, it is likely too late as you have already jumped into this as if they do have valid jurisdiction.
I believe the judge acted poorly as our appearance at a hearing would not have advanced our position and was un necessary in regards to jurisdiction.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
