Judge Whyte's Zoom Video Conference Access Information
Please remember to keep your microphone muted when participating in Zoom meetings for mass dockets such as case management and docket sounding until your case is called. Judge Mercurio will announce a case and inquire if the Defendant is with the attorney in his/her office or is appearing under a separate Zoom account. If you are appearing without a proper identifiable "login name" you will be asked to identify yourself. Whenever possible, please use your full name as your login name and have the camera feature enabled. These simple steps allow the docket to move more effectively.
Important: Any recording of a court proceeding held by video or teleconference, including "screenshots" or other visual copying of a hearing, is absolutely 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.
