COURT VIDEO HEARINGS
Court calendars are being evaluated and rescheduled as needed to comply with state and local orders. Until further notice, the majority of hearings will be held through Webex video teleconferencing. In-person hearings are approved on a case by case basis at this time.
STEPS TO COMPLETE PRIOR TO COURT HEARING
#1 – If you are unsure of your court date/time you can utilize the Calendar Look up Tool (click green button below) to verify your court date. You can search by case# or last name. Otherwise, you can move to the next step.
If your court date is for a small claims matter, please skip to #4 (rights forms and videos are for criminal/traffic matters only).
#2 – If you are appearing for an Arraignment (first hearing on this case), make sure 1 hour PRIOR to the hearing you have completed your Rights and Enhancement Form and watched the Rights Video (click blue buttons below).
#3 – If you are appearing for a Review or Order to Show Cause hearing, make sure 1 hour PRIOR to the hearing you have completed your Post Sentence Rights Form (click orange button below).
#4 – Under VIDEO LINKS BY DATE & TIME towards the bottom of this website, select the date/time you are scheduled to connect to your hearing. You will be asked to register for the hearing by using your name and email. If you are appearing on your own case, please put the same name listed on the court case record so we know you are present for your hearing.
When you first logon there may be other hearings in progress since multiple cases are scheduled at the same time. Please be patient and the Judge will call your case as soon as possible.
It is advised to use the Webex Test site to test your microphone, speakers and camera BEFORE your Webex hearing. This test site is available when you register for your specific date and time in the VIDEO LINKS BY DATE & TIME towards the bottom of this website or you can use the grey Webex Test button below. Additional help about connecting to Webex Video Conferencing is also listed below by clicking the + WEBEX VIDEO HELP to expand the information.

Audio/Video Settings in Event
Select OK to allow access to your microphone.
If you see Judge Reed Parkin (host) then you are in the event. You may not hear anything if the Judge is on mute or in a recess or you may see/hear the Judge handling other cases. When the Judge is ready for your case, he will change your access rights to a panelist and you will have a request pop up to Connect to Audio. Select Use Internet for Audio.
You will then need to unmute and allow your camera. If the buttons are red the Judge won’t be able to hear or see you.
Select OK to allow access to the camera. You will see a preview of your camera then select Start My Video.
If the microphone and video buttons are black and you can see your video, then the Judge should be able to hear/see you and you are ready for your hearing.
You can double check the audio/video icons at any time by hovering over the lower part of the screen or clicking on the screen. The black button with 3 dots will give you more setting options. You may also see a chat icon that you can use to communicate with the court clerk.
