IN PERSON HEARINGS 

Shelby Superior Court 2 has resumed in person hearings for the litigants and their attorneys.   If the courtroom isn’t too crowded, family members may accompany litigants and sit in the back of the courtroom.  However, family members and friends are encourged to watch the proceedings remotely on the court’s livestream website.

If for health reasons you believe it would be best for you to attend remotely, you shall request not less than 2 workdays before your hearing for permission to appear remotely.  The court will consider and rule upon your request.

All parties and witnesses to any remote hearing should familiarize themselves with Zoom prior to a remote hearing.  There are several good videos on Youtube about how to use Zoom.  Zoom requires a computer or phone or tablet with a video camera and microphone and an internet connection.   If you have documents or exhibits that you want the court to consider, you must file those with the court at least two (2) business days before any Zoom hearing.  You must also send copies to the opposing party.

The notice from the Court will contain a meeting ID number and a password.  Go to www.zooom.com\join\ and enter the Meeting ID number and the password provided by Court.  When you join the meeting you will be placed in a virtual waiting room.  The Court will admit you to the meeting when it is your turn.  It may be awhile so please be patient.  Please make sure you conduct yourself and control your surroundings like you are in court, because you are! Contemptuous behavior on a Zoom call is just like contemptuous behavior in the court.

Before the hearing please fill out the appropriate Party Information Sheet on the left side of this page and return it to the court.  You can mail or fax it to the court at (317)392-6499 or contact the Court for instructions on emailing it.

The court prefers to conduct all virtual hearings via Zoom, but the Court may resort to phone calls if necessary.  If you cannot use Zoom, your notice from the Court will contain phone numbers that you can use to call into the court hearing. Call any one of the numbers, enter the same Meeting ID and the numerical password (it will be different than the password for the computer meeting).  You can find information about your case by visiting http:\\mycase.in.gov.  You can also see the Court’s calendar online as well.

All persons having business before the court must sign in and fill out an Criminal Defendant Party Information Sheet if you are appearing in a criminal case or appearance-frm-civil-4.0-fillable in a civil case.  Appearance forms are also located outside the courtroom along with disposable pencils.  You may keep the pencil as a parting gift.
