A hearing was a legal proceeding, similar to, yet distinguished from a trial, in that it was usually shorter, and less formal. An example of a hearing was any of the McCarthy hearings.

When Maximus Mole asked the Superfriends what would happen to them after they were captured, Batman told the Mole family that the authorities would give them a fair hearing.[1]
