LOS ANGELES, April 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CourtCall, the industry leader in remote appearances, welcomes the Supreme Court's decision to conduct oral arguments by teleconference for the first time in response to the changes necessitated by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
By embracing the use of remote appearance technology, the Supreme Court has taken a significant step validating its use.
"While it is unfortunate that circumstances require the Supreme Court to move away from traditional in-person oral argument, tens of thousands of attorneys and thousands of Judges have used CourtCall's full-service telephonic appearance services for millions of hearings since 1996," said Bob Alvarado, Chief Executive Officer of CourtCall. "Regardless of the platform utilized, this action by the Supreme Court will hopefully give confidence to those courts that have not historically viewed telephonic or video appearances as effective and suitable alternatives to in-person appearances."
