Superior Court Statement On Gradual Transition To In Person Appearances In Court

The Superior Court has indicated in its most recent masking order that in criminal proceedings there is a general presumption of personal appearance.  Specifying a presumption in criminal matters is necessary to recognize the unique requirements of identity and presence for some criminal hearings.  While the Court wants parties and counsel to start moving more toward in person appearances generally as we re-open, we recognize that this is a process that takes time, and that the Supreme Court’s Emergency Orders are still in effect allowing remote appearances where appropriate.  Some counsel and/or their families have health concerns that make it appropriate to continue to appear remotely, as do some litigants.  If Counsel, or a party has a reason to continue to appear remotely on any docket, and does not wish to state it on the record, they may contact Court Administration so that it can be communicated to the bench.
