20) DO I HAVE TO COME TO THE HEARING?
No. Interim DPP Lead Counsel will be prepared to answer any questions the Court may have at the Fairness Hearing. However, you are welcome to attend the hearing at your own expense. If you send an objection, you do not have to come to court to explain. As long as you mailed your written objection on time as set out in Question 17, the Court will consider it. You may also pay another lawyer to attend the hearing, but it is not required.
