The LASC will soon begin a phased transition of new and enhanced features in LACourtConnect (LACC).
The new features will, among other changes, allow parties and attorneys to chat and talk privately, screen share and view the courtroom proceedings before their case is called in a secure, virtual gallery environment.
Registration for appearances is being temporarily reduced from 30 to seven (7) days in advance of a hearing.
The phased rollout will first begin in Probate, followed by Civil, Family Law, and Traffic courtrooms. Afterward, the Court will then move Juvenile Dependency courtrooms from Webex to LACC for remote courtroom appearances tentatively scheduled for April/May.
Since its launch in June 2020, more than 1 million individuals have appeared remotely through LACourtConnect.
