BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Stopping a wave of what may be attorneys playing fast and loose with technology — claiming that they are entitled to delays because their clients can’t take part in Zoom or similar video court sessions — Chief Justice Krista Marx Friday ordered sweeping new rules and regulations for essential court hearings during the COVID-19 crisis.
The complete text order is lengthy and can be downloaded as a PDF below. The takeaway paragraph is this:
Essential court proceedings shall not be held remotely unless specifically approved by the Chief Judge and only if it has been determined that they can be effectively held using the technology available to the Circuit. All other essential court proceedings will be held in- person. When conducting in-person essential court proceedings, all judges must employ all methods feasible to minimize the risk of COVID-19 exposure to individuals involved in the proceedings and the general public.
