LRSC 2. TRIAL If a trial is necessary, both plaintiff and defendant will appear, testify, call witnesses, and present exhibits for the court to consider. If it is inconvenient or overly expensive to call a witness to appear personally, affidavits of witnesses can be presented. Any affidavit expected to be considered by the court shall be served on the other party at least five (5) days (excluding Saturday, Sunday and Holidays) before the trial. A responsive affidavit may be presented at the trial. Copies of such affidavits must be made available to the other party before the trial commences. A simple "signed statement" will not be considered an affidavit and will not be accepted as evidence. The same rules apply at this hearing as applied at the first appearance if the parties fail to appear.
