The majority of hearings being held during this time of social distancing are occurring with the use of "sumultaneous electronic transmission" (video.) Clatsop County Circuit Court uses Webex Meetings and user guides are available under "Remote Hearing Documentation" on this page. Here are our local Guidelines for Video Court Apperances.
Observing Court Hearings: The court can provide the video access information to allow the public to join and view and/or listen to a hearing using a computer, mobile device (such as a smartphone or tablet), or phone. Clatsop County Circuit Court does not 'live stream' hearings. Contact the court with any questions on how to observe a remote hearing.
If you are a defendant or party to a case, the
Litigant Guide provides more information. There are also guides for the
Receiving Notice of a Remote Hearing
When you are scheduled for a remote hearing, you (or your attorney) will receive the link to join that hearing through an email from Webex. The hearing notice will also identify how the parties are to attend the hearing.
