All members of the public attending any videoconference hearing must join by the hearing at least 15 minutes in advance of the hearing. Once the hearing begins, no additional viewers will be allowed to access the hearing. When you join the hearing, Court personnel will turn off your video and audio. We ask that your video and audio stay off for the duration of the hearing as only case participants need to be seen and heard by the Court. Failure to comply with these provisions may result in you being removed from the video hearing.
Persons granted remote access to proceedings are reminded of the general prohibition against photographing, recording, and rebroadcasting of court proceedings. LR Gen 112 & Fed. R. Crim. P. 53. Violation of these prohibitions may result in sanctions, including removal of court issued media credentials, restricted entry to future hearings, denial of entry to future hearings, or any other sanctions deemed necessary by the court.
As with in-person hearings, the public will not be able to attend hearings, or portion of hearings, sealed by Court order.
