**OCTOBER, 2021 UPDATE**
Notice of Lack of Prosecution & Order to Appear (FWOP): Absent a resolution of the case in its entirety or a Court Order, parties are required to appear regardless of filings. *FWOP calendars are held via Zoom*
If you are submitting a Proposed Order in compliance with the Judge's ruling from a hearing that was scheduled and heard, you MUST state the date of the hearing on the Proposed Order or the Judge will reject it.
We are establishing Virtual Courtrooms. Court hearings in your case that we can hold remotely via video or phone conference will be held on the Zoom platform, which is free to you. You will receive an email from the Court if we are proceeding with your hearing with the information you need to connect. To participate by video, you must click on the weblink you received in the email invitation at the time your hearing is scheduled or call the phone number listed in the invitation to participate by phone. You do not need to download anything or set up an account in order for you to participate in a zoom hearing.
Video appearance is required for any participant whose testimony is necessary so the judge can administer the oath.
Please wait until a day before your scheduled hearing for the court to send you an email containing a Zoom link and instructions. If you resolve your matter, please cancel it in CourtMAP.
All motion calendars, case management, special sets, calendar call and Non-Jury Trials will be conducted through the Zoom platform. All Jury Trials will be conducted live/in person.
