NOTICE RE TELEPHONIC APPEARANCE PROCEDURES FOR
JUDGE SCOTT C. CLARKSON’S CASES
EFFECTIVE August 6, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Judge Clarkson has altered his prior telephonic hearing procedures. Except as may be otherwise ordered by the Court, all hearings through the end of 2020 before Judge Clarkson will be conducted remotely using CourtCall or ZoomGov.
The Court’s default will be CourtCall. Thus, all hearings will occur by CourtCall, unless specifically noted otherwise in the Court’s tentative.
Simply call CourtCall at (866) 582-6878. Court permission is not required. It is suggested that parties register with CourtCall as early as possible (i.e., days prior to the hearing) to at least 30 minutes prior to the hearing. CourtCall is offering discounted rates to attorneys and FREE access for parties who do not have an attorney (pro se parties).
Video and audio connection information for each hearing will be provided on Judge Clarkson's publicly posted hearing calendar, which may be viewed online at: http://ecf-ciao.cacb.uscourts.gov/CiaoPosted/?jid=SC, and then selecting “Judge Clarkson” from the tab on the left-hand side of the page.
Hearing participants and members of the public may view and listen to hearings before Judge Clarkson using ZoomGov free of charge. 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.
Important: All persons are strictly prohibited from making any recording of court proceedings, whether by video, audio, "screenshot," or otherwise. Violation of this prohibition may result in the imposition of monetary and non-monetary sanctions. The Clerk of the Court maintains an audio recording of all proceedings, which recording constitutes the official record of those proceedings.
