Section (G)(5)(d) and (K)(1)(a) of the new rule: It is virtually impossible to enter a default judgment at the first hearing when the resident fails to appear and it directs a court to adjourn the second hearing to a date “at least 7 days” later. The court must do this unless there is personal service on the resident, which is not the law. Further, by authorizing an adjournment for “at least 7 days,” the second hearing could be set weeks or months after the first hearing. Everyone should oppose these provisions as all they do is cause unnecessary delays.
