~ ALL COURTS: REMOTE AND IN PERSON HEARINGS NOTICE ~

Effective March 7, 2022 we will be reopening the courtrooms of all three courts to the public. Each judge will determine which hearings will be held in person and which will be done remotely. Because the courtrooms will be open to the public, however, hearings will no longer be broadcast on YouTube. Each litigant should carefully look at their notice of hearing to determine if his or her hearing is in person or remote. If there are any questions, he or she should call the court.

If you require accommodations to use the court because of a disability, or if you require a foreign language interpreter to help you fully participate in court proceedings, please contact the court immediately to make arrangements.

General guidelines for participation in a remote court hearing:

  • Download and become familiar with the program being used for the hearing, and test the video, microphone, and speaker controls.
  • If you are having technical issues, please review any technical support provided by the program or application.
  • Find a space that will have as few interruptions as possible. If you will be using video, make sure there is good lighting.
  • The remote court hearing is a court proceeding and therefore an extension of the courtroom — appropriate conduct and attire is required. The judge has control over the proceedings and participants as if they were present in the actual courtroom.
  • The information on the Notice of Hearing with Remote Participation form to join the remote hearing may only be used by you to participate in the hearing.
