Remote Hearing Guidelines
- Do not speak or identify yourself when you enter the hearing but be prepared to indicate your presence when your matter is called by the Commissioner.
- Keep your microphone (phone/computer) muted until it is time for you to speak.
- Use *6 to unmute your telephone.
- If possible, avoid using the speaker phone feature on your phone. If using a computer, consider using a headset with microphone. In either case, please speak slowly and clearly, and to the extent possible, eliminate any background noises in your environment.
- Do not put your call to your court hearing on HOLD. Many phone systems have “hold music” that plays when Hold is activated. Connections disrupting a hearing with hold music or other interference will be terminated, and your matter may be stricken.
