Hearings: Appearing Remotely

(Alexandria, Norfolk-Newport News, and Richmond)


Remote appearances are allowed at the discretion of the presiding judge, for good cause. Mere inconvenience does not constitute good cause.  Absent compelling circumstances, persons may submit a completed Remote Appearance Form to the email address for the presiding judge, not less than two (2) business days in advance of the scheduled hearing. If the Court has not acted on the request by the time of the hearing, the requester is expected to appear in person at the hearing.

No other matters or requests will be considered by Chambers staff and under no circumstances will any such matters or requests be brought to the Judge’s attention. Failure to comply with these instructions may result in appropriate action, including but not limited to the imposition of sanctions.


Under no circumstances may any participant or listener record or broadcast the proceedings.
