From what I read in the article, it is not even clear that the defendant got the court notices. (Bock is the defendant)
I think she might have been busy with securing a place to live, and if that was set, then a job...
When Katrina hit in August 2005, Bock's house was flooded and she moved temporarily to Texas before returning to Louisiana last June. Court papers that Scheff and her attorney David H. Pollack mailed to Bock were returned to Pollack's office in Miami.
