...which, per the docket information it states that "the appelant's failure to appear will result in a Default". What I am concerned about is that the judge still heard my case (45 minutes worth), asked very detailed questions which I answered as honestly as I could - this was a case in which I was forced to quit due to sexual harassment, a hostile work environment, retaliation, and a radical change in my job description - and the judge stated that she would have an answer as soon as possible.
Others are telling me that a default means that it's automatically in my favor, but I'm concerned that with the 45 minute hearing, it won't go in my favor.
What are my chances it will be in my favor?
The past 14 weeks have made me somewhat jaded, cynical and cautious.
