What is CourtCall?
CourtCall is an organized program allowing attorneys or self-represented persons to appear by telephone in certain non-evidentiary, pre-trial proceedings. By paying a fixed fee in advance, an attorney or unrepresented party may secure a place on the court's telephonic hearing calendar and make an appearance without leaving their home, office, or other convenient location. A fee for this service is required by CourtCall. CourtCall is voluntary and supplements, but does not replace, the regular calendar for those matters requiring a personal appearance. All CourtCall appearances should be arranged no later than five (5) court days prior to the hearing.
How does CourtCall work?
Most pre-trial proceedings are conducted through daily calendars. With CourtCall, a lawyer or self- represented party appears by telephone on a regularly scheduled Telephonic Hearing Calendar by simply calling the dedicated toll-free teleconference number listed below. The court clerk calls the same number, and after a brief check-in period, during which all participating lawyers report their appearances to the clerk, the calendar is conducted case by case, just as in personal appearances.
