Effective March 7, 2022 we will be reopening the courtrooms of all three courts to the public. Each judge will determine which hearings will be held in person and which will be done remotely. Because the courtrooms will be open to the public, however, hearings will no longer be broadcast on YouTube. Each litigant should carefully look at their notice of hearing to determine if his or her hearing is in person or remote. If there are any questions, he or she should call the court.
