Im i too late?
Probably.. but if you blow off the court date, DEFINITELY. If you don't go, you LOSE by default - bad idea to blow off court dates.

You can call the attorney who is suing and see if you can negotiate a settlement or payment plan. Make an offer and get any arrangement and/or settlement IN WRITING.
