Arizona Supreme Court To Hear Cases Remotely Due To Outbreak

Arizona Supreme Court via facebook

The Coronavirus outbreak has prompted the Arizona Supreme Court to schedule remote legal arguments in six cases with attorneys appearing through videoconferencing.

The arrangement is a departure from the court’s standard practice of hearing arguments in its Phoenix courtroom or in alternative locations such as law schools.

The court has scheduled three arguments on April 14 and three more April 16. The justices will be in the courtroom except for a former justice and a Court of Appeals judge filling in for justices who recused themselves from at least one case. The fill-in justices will be in Tucson and participate remotely.
