Each Party shall appear for the hearing by video conference by using Zoom, EXCEPT as stated below in section titled “In Person/Zoom Hearings”.  Each Party may use a computer with a camera and speakers or download the app for free on their phone to participate by video.  At the scheduled time of the hearing, each Party may access the hearing by using the following link:  Alternatively, each Party may use the website or app and enter the Meeting ID: 386 778 5704. Please make sure to activate the video and audio settings so you can see, hear and speak during the hearing.  Please WAIT PATIENTLY until your hearing is called.


If a Party does not have access to a computer with camera and speakers or a smart phone with video capability, the Party must still appear for the hearing by phone.  At the scheduled time of the hearing, a Party may access the hearing by calling 1 (301) 715-8592.  When prompted, enter the Meeting ID: 386 778 5704.  The phone dial-in and Meeting ID may be utilized from any landline, cellular or internet phone.
