Many hearings during the declared judicial emergency will take place by video conferencing at remote locations. The parties to a case (i.e. parent, guardian, custodian of the child who is the subject of the hearing) shall be admitted inside the courtroom. To comply with CDC social distancing guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all other persons (public) wishing to view the proceedings shall be allowed access via a live stream video on Zoom.com. Persons wanting to view in this manner must notify the clerk before a hearing so that login information can be provided. If a member of the public should object to viewing the proceedings by video, the Court will entertain such objection in writing stating the reasons for the objection and file same with the Clerk of the Court. The judge will consider the motion and then sustain, overrule, or enter an order specific to the reasons provided.
