Watch/Listen to First Appearances


Restricted access/service at the courthouse and branch office will continue through July 2020, per court order. You may be directed by your assigned judge’s judicial assistant to attend a court appearance via the Zoom app/website. If so, you’ll receive directions regarding date, time and log-in link directly from the judicial assistant.

Zoom helps organizations – like court systems – bring people together in an interactive online environment. It is an easy, reliable cloud platform for video, voice, content sharing, and chat runs across mobile devices, desktops, telephones, and room systems.

Please Note: If you are not required to come to the courthouse, use these online options, which include Forms, E-Filing of cases and eRecording of documents.
