A hypothetical person is scheduled for an arraignment on a misdemeanor charge. His attorney files a motion with the court to postpone the arraignment. Assuming the court agrees with the motion, will the court notify the defendant and if so how?

1 Answer 1


The court will not notify the defendant. The court gives notice to the attorney who is responsible for informing the client.

  • Could the client call the court and would the court verify that the client does not need to show up?
