Michelle Shagenov
53:05
are the nuisance cases for hmp part post judgment (similar to recent non pay hmp)? or are these newly filed nuisance cases?
Andrea Alajbegovic
53:10
Judge Schneider - how is the court determining which cases involve a nuisance prior to being placed on the new calendar?
Angela W
53:24
So all we do is download sign and send declaration to landlord.

If the court is not doing anything on stayed cases, why are some judges scheduling dates in March for cases which had dates in January after the stay took effect?

Will the tenant be notified if their declaration is denied for whatever reason (for example if it has an electronic signature and if e-sigs are not ultimately accepted)?
