The Settled Statement Hearing
You must attend the Settled statement hearing. Technically the judge should also attend but I have seen this waived by the court. The DA (or City Attorney) may also attend (even if they were not present at the trial).
At the hearing, such of the parties mentioned above as are present shall agree on a statement of the facts of the case. Know what you need included in support of the points in your Opening Brief. Do your best (in a civil manner) to assure that the statement includes these facts.
If you have kept strictly to the facts in your Proposed Statement, you may get it accepted with minimal or no changes.
Once all of the parties have agreed to the facts and wording of the statement, it is time for the Engrossed Statement.
