Zoom Instructions for the 25th District Court

Local Court Zoom Call Policy:

  • The call is a court proceeding and therefore an extension of the court room; appropriate conduct and attire is required.
  • Remote participants must use a private and quiet room that will be free of interruptions. (Outdoor, in vehicle, or public places are not recommended.) Also, video meetings need good, consistent lighting; therefore, avoid rooms with bright windows and/or back-lighting.
  • Remote participants must place their mobile devices on a solid surface with the camera at eye level. Do not hand-hold mobile devices and do not lay phone or tablets flat on a desk or tabletop.
  • The court has the right to terminate the call/proceeding if the video experience is not acceptable.
  • The judge has control over the proceeding and participants as if they were in present in the physical court room.

Technical Responsibilities:

  • The court DOES NOT provide technical assistance for testing or troubleshooting. Additionally, the court does not provide time during your court proceedings to troubleshoot issues.
  • Directions for testing your device and networking prior to the proceeding can be found at zoom.us or zoom.us/test
  • Remote participants should take time prior to the call to become familiar with the Zoom controls and test your devices, microphone and speaker controls.
  • If you are having issues with your equipment you should review the Zoom training and support materials at zoom.us
  • Remote participants should use a good LAN, WI-FI or substantial LTE connection to ensure a quality call. (Please Note: Mobile data use may incur cellular carrier charges which are the responsibility of the remote participant.)
