Due Process Hearing
A due process hearing is a court-like review process governed by administrative laws. SERC will provide a highly-trained hearing officer who will preside over the hearing and whose decisions have the effect of law and are binding upon the parties participating in the hearing. During a hearing, both parties subpoena and present witnesses and perform cross-examination; present admissible evidence; may present depositions or affidavits; engage in closing arguments, and request that the hearing officer rule favorably on their positions. Parties may represent themselves or be represented by attorneys at their own expense.
