The way to win any hearing, in my opinion, is to meet the challenge of being in outer space by keeping a focus of putting facts first and supporting the facts with humongously terrific arguments.
Anyway, below are the rules and laws that could be helpful to someone who wanted to know more about the 3020-a in principle.
However, a law is only as good as it's implementation.
None of the laws or rules are honored unless you want them to be. Just reading the law wont help you.
That's the problem. Have someone in your hearing who supports you and who knows the fight and can use the rules to win the argument. Remember Reese's pieces in the movie E.T.?
That 's what you need to do. Find E.T.
