The decision says the case was "re-called from the calendar . . . Petitioners and counsel for respondent again appeared and were heard". Does that mean or imply that there was a trial? I think it's not correct. What actually happened is that we went to the calendar call, a trial date/time was set, and we showed up for it. At the "trial", the judge decided not to conduct a trial, and we were NOT heard in any significant way. Most of the issues in the petition were ignored. Does the language of this decision mislead?
I re-posted this question under "Tax," as it does not appear to be a federal crime case. You should speak with a tax attorney about your questions. Best of luck.

It would be hard for anyone to advise you on this without more information. There are many variables and to advise you, one would have to have a firm grasp of the issue and why the court would not hear your arguments. Did you have an attorney with you? If yes, what did they say.
This response does not create an attorney client relationship nor should the advice be relied upon because it is not specific to your legal situation. Before you depend on legal advice, you should retain competent counsel.
