Homosassa, FL asked in Real Estate Law, Animal / Dog Law, Civil Rights and Legal Malpractice for Florida

Q: Does Notice of Hearing need to state purpose of the hearing?

We are being harassed in civil lawsuit (ongoing for year now-Injunction prohibits us from harassing Petitioner, but allows Petitioner to relentlessly harass us-is there no end to this? Former rear neighbors' Pitbull broke into our pool cage former neighbors take us to court and their friend, the Judge enters 3 year stalking injunction against us. Further, I am hearing/speech impaired senior-I was denied ADA rights to accommodations-I heard nothing at the hearing that resulted in malicious entry of 3 year stalking injunction Is there no help for us-we are the victims please!

A: Generally, a notice of hearing is supposed to state what is being heard, just the title of the motion; unless the court set it and it is a case management/status conference with no specific item being heard.

You need to reach out to the county for each hearing you need assistance at per the below.

for Citrus County:

AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT. If you are a person with a disability who needs any accommodation in

order to participate in this proceeding, you are entitled, at no cost to you, to the provision of certain assistance. Please

contact the ADA Coordinator for Citrus County, John Sullivan, at (352) 341-6700 at least 7 days before your

scheduled court appearance, or immediately upon receiving this notification if the time before the scheduled

appearance is less than 7 days; if you are hearing or voice impaired, call 711.
