On September 7, 2022 your Court Office Technical Board (the Board) met with the Courts following up on the continuance of AB199. This allows the parties of a trial to attend court remotely.
The concern addressed by UPE and the Board was the allowance of Court Reporters to remote into these sessions, where AB199 strictly prohibits this. The Courts assured UPE and the Board that this was a non-issue. The term “parties,” all agreed, is exclusive to the defendant/s, the plaintiff/s and the witness/es.
Thank you to the Court Office Technical Board.
