RE TELEPHONIC APPEARANCE PROCEDURES FOR MAGISTRATE
DONNA M. RYU EFFECTIVE APRIL 11, 2012
POLICY GOVERNING TELEPHONIC APPEARANCES
representative (or a party if in pro se) generally
must appear in person for a hearing or case management
conference. Permission to attend by telephone may be granted,
in the Court's discretion, upon written request made at
least one week in advance of the hearing if the Court
determines that good cause exists to excuse personal
attendance, and that personal attendance is not needed in
order to have an effective hearing or conference. The facts
establishing good cause must be set forth in the request. All
telephonic appearances must be made through CourtCall, an
independent conference call company, pursuant to the
procedures set forth in Section II. If an individual
schedules a telephonic appearance and then fails to respond
to the call of a matter on calendar, the Court may pass the
matter or may treat the failure to respond as a failure to
appear. Scheduling simultaneous telephonic appearances in
multiple courts does not excuse a failure to appear.
Individuals making use of the conference call service are
cautioned that they do so at their own risk. Hearings
generally will not be rescheduled due to missed connections.
SCHEDULING A TELEPHONIC APPEARANCE.
Court grants a party's request for telephonic appearance,
the party shall arrange for the appearance by calling
CourtCall at (866) 582-6878 at least three business days
prior to the hearing date.
PROCEDURE FOR TELEPHONIC APPEARANCE.
Call will provide counsel with written confirmation of a
telephonic appearance, and give counsel a number to call to
make the telephonic appearance. It is counsel's
responsibility to dial into the call not later than 10
minutes prior to the scheduled hearing.
