Judge Colon-Sayre Standing Order

I will continue to allow litigants to use Zoom after August 1, 2021 under the following circumstances:

  1.  Every Wednesday that Court is in session, I will have a 9:00 am Zoom status call.  Only cases scheduled for case management or status will be heard via Zoom;
  2. I will allow for limited appearances via Zoom by litigants to accommodate for special circumstances, including parties who live out-of-state or have special medical needs.

All hearings and trials will take place in-person, allowing for Zoom testimony if necessary.  All matters heard Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday will be heard in-person and Zoom will not be turned on unless a request to appear remotely has been previously granted.

This schedule will go into effect starting September 1, 2021.
