My lay guess about what the clerk of the court meant when he/she said that WingstheONE "should" attend is that:
(1) there is no direct penalty for failing to attend, but
(2) it would be in WingstheONE's best interests to attend, so that he can tell his/her side of the story -- i.e., if WingstheONE does not attend, the court may make adverse decisions since it only heard one side of the case.

But I'm not a lawyer.
