Local Remote Hearings

Image of remote meeting on a computerGeneral Information

Many hearings are being held with the use of "simultaneous 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 general public, witnesses, and attorneys.

 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.

Please see the OJD Responses to Coronavirus page for a listing of applicable Chief Justice Orders.

 Information for Case Participants

Case participants are persons (litigants or defendants) who are parties in a case with pending matters to be resolved. When a case is scheduled for a remote hearing, some or all the participants, including attorneys and witnesses, may be required to appear via remote means. The court uses Webex to host these remote hearings and will provide case participants with the link to join the hearing. See our Litigant Guide for more information on preparing for and accessing your scheduled remote hearing.
