(*The use of CourtCall® (or another comparable telephonic court appearance program) for telephonic hearings is mandatory unless excused by the court. CourtCall® is used by the court because the court has limited incoming call capability and coordination of multiple callers and calls on one or more cases can be a challenge. In addition, permitting counsel to appear by phone is a convenience to counsel and the litigant. The cost of counsel appearing in person at a hearing greatly exceeds the reasonable expense of CourtCall®. Nevertheless, the court will consider a request to be excused from using CourtCall® should such use be a hardship. An attorney or party asking to be excused from using CourtCall® must make a written request detailing why either counsel or counsel’s client are unable to participate in the CourtCall® program.)
