JUDGES CONDUCTING HEARINGS USING REMOTE TECHNOLOGY
Twelfth Judicial Circuit Court judges are conducting court hearings via the Zoom platform. No camera? No problem! The Zoom platform allows individuals to appear via telephone if they do not have an available camera.
Court hearings are public proceedings, and the public may observe court proceedings. There are no fees for attending a court hearing via the Zoom platform.
To obtain the necessary information to attend a hearing before a particular judge, please click on the Judge’s name in the list below. That link will display the date, time, Meeting ID, and passcode, if any, for hearings. The information in these links will constantly change and may only display hearings for the next few days.
If you are a person with a disability who needs an accommodation in order to attend a virtual court proceeding, you are entitled, at no cost to you, to the provision of certain assistance. Please contact the ADA coordinator for additional information on how to request an accommodation.
ZOOM HEARING BUT NO ACCESS TO INTERNET OR PHONE?
If you have a Zoom hearing but do not have access to the Internet or a phone, you must write to the judge so we can try to make other arrangements for your hearing. Please print and complete this Notice of Inability to Participate in Zoom Hearing and submit it to the clerk's office in the county in which your case is filed before your hearing date.
Important: Any recording of a court proceeding held by video or teleconference, including "screenshots" or other visual copying of a hearing, is strictly prohibited. Violation of these prohibitions may result in sanctions, including removal of court-issued media credentials, restricted entry to future hearings, denial of entry to future hearings, or any other sanctions deemed necessary by the court.
