Remote Hearing Information

The DC Courts are conducting most hearings remotely or partially remote. On April 5, 2021, the Superior Court started limited in-person jury trials with protocols to ensure the safety and well‐being of court staff, counsel, parties, and the public. Most Superior Court hearings are open to the public. You can join by WebEx, a video-conference application, or by phone. Check the Court of Appeals for information on appeals remote hearings.

Audio and video recording; taking pictures of remote hearings; and sharing the live or recorded remote hearing by rebroadcasting, live-streaming or otherwise are not allowed.

Please see the links below for log-in information and how to access remote court hearings. Please check our Coronavirus page for the latest operating status and the case types that are being heard.

Parties to cases (plaintiffs, defendants, petitioners and respondents) can find information about remote access and special instructions for their participation on this page: Remote Hearing Information for Parties and Other Court Participants

See the DC Superior Court Online Case Search page to perform a party name or case number search for the date the case is scheduled for a remote hearing.

***Please Note: The DC Courts have remote sites available for those without a home computer or laptop, good WiFi or for other reasons would prefer to participate in a remote hearing from a location other than their home.
