What is the hearing like?

Although the hearing is recorded and takes place in a courtroom, it is informal. You may wear casual clothing. You may not bring a weapon into the courtroom or into the building at all. The Hearing Examiner sits where a judge would sit in a regular trial. OSBI is seated at the left table. When your case is called, you should come up to the table on the right side of the room. While other cases are going on, you may have a seat in the back of the courtroom and observe. You may remain seated as you give testimony or present exhibits.
