TELEPHONE HEARING REQUIREMENTS

  1. The Procedure
    1. The Court will not call you.
    2. Five minutes before your hearing time, you must call in on the applicable hearing line.
  2. Minimize Outside Noise and Distractions
    1. Telephone hearings are amplified throughout the courtroom so you may be asked to call again if your connection is weak, creates static or disruptive noise.
    2. Minimize background noise by not using a “speaker” option or headset. Do not use a keyboard or talk with others in the room.
    3. Mute your phone when you are not speaking. If you do not have a mute function on your phone, press *6 to mute and *6 again to unmute to speak. Do not put the court on hold. If available, set the phone to "Do Not Disturb" so it will not ring during the hearing
  3. What to Do When You Are on the Conference Line
    1. Do not announce your presence until the court calls your case.
    2. Stay on the line, even if there is only silence, until the judge starts the hearings, and then continue to listen quietly until your case is called.
  4. What to Do When your Case is Called
    1. Unless otherwise directed by the Court, when your case is called, the moving party will speak first. Identify yourself every time you speak.
    2. The Court will control who will speak and how the hearing will be held.
    3. When the court calls your case, it is helpful if the moving party speaks first to avoid multiple parties speaking at the same time.
  5. Don’t be Late to a Hearing
  6. If you are late, then the Court, at its discretion, may trail your hearing and/or deny or grant the applicable motion.

  7. Civility
    1. Be civil on the phone with the Court and other counsel.
    2. Do not interrupt others.
    3. Do not yell into the phone.
