NOTICE TO ALL COUNSEL – Telephonic Appearances

For appearances commencing in May 2010, we will join a growing number of Judges in Maryland and around the country in using CourtCall, to conduct telephonic appearances by counsel (“CourtCall Appearances”).  In our courtrooms, CourtCall will be used in the following circumstances in the Civil docket:

  • Pretrial settlement conferences (Room 511 Mitchell).  Parties or other persons who are not counsel who are excused from attendance by prior court order will be required to participate by CourtCall.  CourtCall is not available for use by attorneys for pretrial settlement conferences.
  • In cases where prior permission is obtained from the presiding judge, attorneys will be permitted to participate in scheduling conferences by CourtCall.
  • In cases where prior permission is obtained from the presiding judge, professional witnesses may be permitted to participate in Fast Track cases.

CourtCall will be used in Civil and Domestic dockets in the following circumstances: Attorneys within the Beltway will be permitted to participate at Postponement Court by CourtCall.

Attorneys outside the Beltway may continue to use the current phone system for single callers only.  All conference calls must be arranged privately by counsel, so that only a single incoming call to the Court is placed or the attorneys may all agree to use CourtCall.  No conference calls though cell phones will be permitted.

When a telephonic appearance using CourtCall is permitted by the Court, Counsel should contact CourtCall by serving and filing with CourtCall (not the Court), NOT LESS THAN THREE (3) COURT DAYS PRIOR TO THE HEARING DATE, a Request for Telephonic Appearance Form and paying a fee of $55.00 for each CourtCall Appearance. (There are no subscription fees) An exception to this rule is granted for calls to any Postponement Court. The request in these cases may be made up to four (4) hours in advance of the time of Postponement Court.

A CourtCall Appearance is made as part of a Court’s regular calendar and all counsel who have timely filed their request form and paid the fee may appear by dialing the Courtroom dedicated toll free teleconference number, and access code (if any) which will be provided by CourtCall, LLC on the confirmation faxed to your office. A pre-hearing check-in will occur five minutes prior to the scheduled hearing time. A CourtCall Appearance is voluntary and may be made without consent of the other party, and the Court continues to reserve the right to reject any request. In matters where only one party elects to make a CourtCall Appearance, the matter will be heard on the Court’s speakerphone provided by CourtCall.

You may obtain additional information by calling the CourtCall Program Administrator, at (310) 342-0888 or (888) 882-6878.
