Some hearings are held with one or more parties not physically present in the courtroom. If the remote hearing is eligible for public viewing, it will be live-streamed through Webex Events (the software Oregon's state courts use for this purpose). When available, live streaming allows the public to join and view and/or listen to these hearings from a computer, mobile device (such as a smartphone or tablet), or phone (subject to some limitations). Many remote hearings may also be available to view at a court facility. Contact the court with any questions on how to access 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.
Chief Justice Order 20-016 contains information, under section 7, for the electronic submission of documentary exhibits and non-documentary exhibits. Also, see Presiding Judge Order 2021-02 on "Exhibits for Hearings and Trials".
When you are scheduled for a remote hearing, you will receive the link to join that hearing through a hearing notice and/or an email from the court or Webex. For more information about connecting to remote hearings see:
Webex Conference Line Info
Please see the OJD Responses to Coronavirus page for a listing of applicable Chief Justice Orders.
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
Webex Conference Line Info and our
Litigant Guide for more information on preparing for and accessing your scheduled remote hearing.
