Access to Courtroom Audio Streaming Here (Zoom Meeting Info)

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused the court to limit physical access to observe court proceedings, in order to practice social distancing and limit the risk for spread of the virus. In-person observance is the preference of the court; however, social distancing protocols required by public health, limit the number of persons the court may allow in each courtroom and other court areas. Audio streaming is being provided as a temporary process to allow access to court proceedings while social distancing protocols may prevent full, in-person, access to courtrooms.

To ensure the public has access to court proceedings, the court will provide a mechanism for the public to hear courtroom proceedings (aka “streaming”) via Zoom. If you do not have access to the Zoom app, you may listen to the court proceeding with a touch-tone telephone or cellular device. You do not need to install the Zoom app to stream the courtroom proceedings.

To request to audio stream courtroom proceedings, you must submit a request in email to the court district where the hearing is scheduled. The request must be submitted at least 5 days in advance of the hearing. Requests received within 5 days of the hearing may not be available for audio streaming. The request must include the case number, party name, hearing date, hearing time, courtroom/department number the hearing is scheduled, and requestor’s contact information, including email address and telephone number. Failure to provide this information may result in audio streaming being unavailable.
