WHAT TO DO IF YOU WANT TO APPEAR BY TELEPHONE AND NOT USE ZOOM: You are not required to use Zoom. You may choose to appear for your hearing by telephone instead; however, please note that other parties and participants (potentially including the judicial officer) will be on Zoom and your audio participation in the hearing will be observed by those using Zoom. If you choose to appear by telephone, please email the Court Scheduler with the following information: NAME, CASE NUMBER, HEARING DATE & TIME, and TELEPHONE NUMBER where you can be reached for the hearing. You will be called from the courtroom at the number provided when your case is ready to be heard. Please remember that you may not receive the call right at the outset of the calendar and you must remain available to the phone at any time while the calendar is being heard; this could be up to 2-3 hours. If you do not answer when the Court calls you, it will be considered a non-appearance and the Court may proceed accordingly.
