procedural due process

Procedural due process, guaranteed by the federal and state consitutions “is protection of the individual against arbitrary action of government. [D]ue process generally requires consideration of (1) the private interest that will be affected by the official action, (2) the risk of an erroneous deprivation of such interest through the procedures used, (3) informing individuals of the nature, grounds and consequences of the action and in enabling them to present their side of the story before a responsible governmental official, and (4) the governmental interest.” (People v. Ramirez (1979) 25 Cal.3d 260, 267-68 (ellipses omitted).)
