On the day of the scheduled trial, go to the court and tell the judge why you think that you should get the relief you have asked for.
The burden is on you to prove that the ESD Commissioner's decision is wrong. Again, review the laws that apply to your case. See #5 above. Tell the judge why you believe the law and/or rules support your claim. You cannot bring witnesses or introduce new evidence.
Explain to the judge the facts of the case. Set out your arguments. This should take about l5 minutes or less.
If the judge interrupts you and asks questions, answer them as best as you can.
Next, the AAG will be given a chance to respond. Do not interrupt the AAG while they are talking. They have the right to set forth their position on the case. Once the AAG is finished, you will be given a short time to reply to the AAG's arguments.
The Superior Court judge's decision will be based on the evidence that was presented at the administrative hearing by both you, the ESD, and the reasons that you have given the judge as to why you believe you should win.
A judge will usually announce their decision at the end of the proceeding and will enter an order which is written confirmation of the decision. If you are awarded benefits, be sure that the order plainly sets forth the terms of this decision, as it will go back to ESD for further action. The entire trial will take about an hour.
Best of luck!
Remember: Cases are won by persuasive arguments made at a trial. Be prepared. Know the key facts of your case and stick to them. Understand the laws that apply to your case, and why you think the law allows you to receive benefits.
Be brief, clear, respectful, and organized.
