Local Remote Hearings

Image of remote meeting on a computerGeneral Information

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


Please contact the court directly if you need remote appearance information.

 Receiving Notice of a Remote Hearing

When you are scheduled for a remote hearing, you will receive NOTICE OF SCHEDULED COURT APPEARANCE which will contain the Webex information. 

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

Attorneys should forward the Webex link they received to their clients, witnesses, and interested parties. 

 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.
