LIRLJ 3.3(b) REPRESENTATION BY LAWYER At a contested hearing, the plaintiff shall be represented by a lawyer representative of the prosecuting authority when the defendant is represented by a lawyer; or when the defendant has served upon the prosecution a demand for discovery, requested a speed measuring device expert to appear, or filed motions requesting relief based upon an alleged failure by the plaintiff/prosecution to perform duties required by law. A notice of appearance must be filed by a lawyer representing a defendant at a contested hearing within 7 days from the date the defendant files a request for a contested hearing. Upon receipt of the lawyer's notice of appearance, the clerk shall reset the contested hearing to the appropriate jurisdiction's next available contested hearing infraction calendar with a lawyer representative of the prosecuting authority or if appropriate to the next contested hearing calendar for the designated law enforcement agency's speed measuring device expert. The failure to timely file a notice of appearance may result in the contested hearing being held beyond the 120 days from the date of notice of infraction or the date the default judgment was set aside, as required by IRLJ 2.6(a).
