Remote Court Proceedings (RCP) provide the opportunity for parties involved in court proceedings to use technology tools to participate remotely.
If you have specific questions about your court event, please contact the clerk's office in the county for which you are scheduled to appear. For those attending remote court proceedings for the first time, refer to the Appearing in Court Remotely Quick Reference Guide here, or en español aqí.
RCP may be conducted Zoom or Microsoft Teams platform. Zoom is a cloud platform for video, voice, and content sharing that runs across mobile devices, desktops, telephones, and room systems. Microsoft Teams is a collaborative meeting application with video, audio, and screen sharing features.
Participants (judges, attorneys, prosecutors, defendants, witnesses, etc.) require:
- A computer (laptop or desktop), tablet, or smart phone (iOS or Android);
- Secure and dependable internet service; and
- Microsoft Teams or Zoom installed on your device or the Microsoft Teams or Zoom Web App
While using the Zoom application is preferred because video capabilities ensures parties can be "seen", individuals may also join courtroom events by phone only using the same meeting codes and password combination.
