Tetyana Kimberlin failed to appear for her show cause hearing for failure to appear. However, she has also successfully dodged service of the court’s sua sponte show cause order, and the Maryland Rules do not permit the hearing to held until she is served. Therefore, Judge Hecker (who is pretty much running the case by the book) continued the hearing until after she is served. Because the writ of summons is still outstanding, no new paperwork was issued.
While this is not my preferred result, it is one of the two possible outcomes I expected.
The next hearings are scheduled immediately before the trial begins on 21 August.
T-minus 18 days and counting.
