DOMPERIDONE HEARING AND PROBATION TERMS AND CONDITIONS

On 10/23/2015 we met with our attorney, Tony Park, at the State Court House in Downtown LA, at 9:30 A.M. for a Preliminary Hearing with a Judge for our up coming, December, court hearing.

At 10:00 A.M. we convened for a Settlement Conference with an Administrative Judge and a representative of the California State Attorney General's (AG) office.  After preliminary information, the Judge spent about 60 minutes hearing our side of the story. The Judge than met for about 20 minutes with the AG representative. Upon reconvening there was a brief of negotiation between our Attorney and the AG representative. At that point in time it was highly recommended, by the Judge, to us to take the settlement. A trial would be too costly financially and emotionally.
