Zoom

Zoom is an online meeting program where all parties involved with the case can appear by video or telephone at the same time.

The day before the scheduled hearing, you will receive a link to join the Zoom Meeting at your scheduled hearing time via email. This can be done from any device with a camera: cell phone, laptop, desktop or tablet. Video participation is preferred, however, in the event that none of those devices is available to attorneys and/or clients, telephone participation will be allowed.

ZOOM COURT RULES:

Valid email addresses for all parties and attorneys must be submitted to the court coordinator at least 7 days before the scheduled hearing.

All proposed documents must be efiled 48 hours before the hearing.

Any proposed exhibits must be pre-marked and emailed to the coordinator 24 hours prior to hearing.  Please use same marking system as file names.

A list of witnesses (with email addresses) must be sent to the coordinator prior to hearing.

All potential witnesses need to appear on Zoom at the scheduled date and time of the hearing to be sworn in together and admonished.  Please contact the court if you need an exception to this rule.

Potential witnesses are not allowed to participate on a Zoom hearing from the same location.  Please ensure arrangements are made and audio/video tested before the scheduled hearing.

All attorneys need to ensure that their clients in the case, as well as additional witnesses, are familiar with Zoom and that they join using a device with audio and video capabilities.  Practice with your clients to ensure that everything is in working order well before any scheduled hearing as to avoid any unnecessary delays to this Court.  Pro tip: Headphones/earbuds with a built in microphone work great.

Please keep in mind that while this is an unconventional hearing method it is still a formal court proceeding and all parties will be expected to dress and act accordingly.
