MADERA COUNTY, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — The Madera County Superior Court announced Thursday it will soon allow the public to watch certain court proceedings online through Zoom.
The new service, which starts Oct. 1, aims to enhance “continuing and already available in-person access to the courthouse and court proceedings,” said Adrienne Calip, Court Executive Officer.
The public can request a Zoom link for a proceeding of interest by submitting an online request through the court’s website or through this form. Requests must be received no later than 4 p.m. on the day before the court proceeding.
People who request a Zoom link will receive instructions and conduct expectations from court staff.
Because of the confidential nature of certain court proceedings, officials said public access will not be available for all submitted requests.
Calip said the method in which the court’s justice partners currently receive Zoom links will not change.
