NOTICE OF VIDEO AND TELEPHONIC APPEARANCE PROCEDURES FOR JUDGE MARTIN R. BARASH'S CASES
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Judge Barash has suspended his prior telephonic hearing procedures. Until further notice, and except as may be otherwise ordered by the Court, all hearings before Judge Barash will be conducted remotely using ZoomGov. Hearing participants and members of the public may view and listen to hearings before Judge Barash using ZoomGov free of charge. Video and audio connection information for each hearing will be provided on Judge Barash's publicly posted hearing calendar, which may be viewed online at: http://ecf-ciao.cacb.uscourts.gov/CiaoPosted/?jid=MB
Individuals may appear by ZoomGov video and audio using a personal computer (equipped with camera, microphone and speaker), or a handheld mobile device (such as an iPhone). Individuals may participate by ZoomGov audio only using a telephone (standard telephone charges may apply). Neither a Zoom nor a ZoomGov account are necessary to participate and no pre-registration is required. The audio portion of each hearing will be recorded electronically by the Court and constitute its official record.
Tips for a Successful ZoomGov Court Experience
If available, a headset-microphone often provides better sound quality for listening and speaking.
Participants and members of the public should at all times remember that although conducted remotely, these hearings are official court proceedings, and individuals should act accordingly.
If video is enabled, please wear attire consistent with the decorum of court proceedings.
ZoomGov permits the use of virtual backgrounds to safeguard your privacy. If you choose to use a virtual background, please avoid backgrounds that are offensive or distracting.
ZoomGov video participants are permitted to specify a display name. If using video, please specify your complete name to assist the Court in creating a record of the proceedings.
