Information for Counsel

Counsel will not appear in person for oral argument; all arguments will be conducted remotely. The remote arguments will be held at designated times indicated on the argument schedule.

Prior to oral argument, parties will receive a notice of oral argument with instructions to participate by way of Cisco Webex Events software. Cisco provides facilities to test this software here: https://www.webex.com/test-meeting.html

From 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM the morning of your scheduled argument, Superior Court staff will provide an opportunity to test your audio connection and your video connection, if applicable.  To take advantage of the opportunity at that time, follow the instructions provided in the notice for participating in oral argument. Staff will monitor the event and work with you to confirm your connection.

In the event you are unable to participate in argument, contact the respective district office.
