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. Links to live-stream remote hearings are posted here.

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

 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 and Microsoft TEAMS telephonic conference lines for these remote hearings and will provide case participants with the link to a Webex meeting or a hearing notice with the phone conference information. See our Litigant Guide for more information on preparing for and accessing your scheduled remote hearing.

Receiving Notice of a Remote Hearing

When you are scheduled for a remote hearing, you will receive a hearing notice indicating the hearing is either a telephonic appearance or a Webex appearance. If the notice indicates the hearing is to be done using Webex, contact the court with your email address if you have not already done so using the email or phone number below. After you have provided your email address to the court you will receive an email from the court, or from Webex, with the information to join the meeting.
