It reads as mandatory to me, too. It uses the word "shall" multiple times. The only reference to "may" is to allow the judge discretion as to whether or not to allow the initial hearing to be conducted telephonically.

I haven't found anything that explains what "loophole" she found, but that is apparently what happened. She skipped the initial hearing and went directly to the hearing at which Morris (or his attorney) was a participant. I'm reviewing the text of the law now, and I can't find anything that tells me this is possible -- but the facts are that it happened.
