Two announcements from the Court, via Judge Syren and Judge Chatterjee

The first attachment is the updated schedule/calendar of each Family Law Department’s sessions for remote hearings by BlueJeans. This takes effect 6/1/20. The invitation for the BlueJeans appearance will be emailed to the parties and counsel by the Court clerk.

As stated by the judges, each department’s BlueJeans meeting ID is their respective phone number. These numbers can be found on the Court’s website.

Most hearings do not require passwords but, if one is needed, there is a “department wide” password assigned for each day of the week: Monday is 1801, Tuesday is 2802, Wednesday is 3803, Thursday is 4804 and Friday is 5805.
