The use of technological assistance during hearings at the Sherbrooke courthouse is possible in the following situations:
Every application for the holding of a telephone conference call must be submitted to the judge assigned to hear the case (if any) or to the coordinating judge.
To hear witnesses during an examination on the merits, a videolink may be used based on the following procedure:
Please note that unless a videolink is specifically required, the technology cannot be used if a telephone conference call would otherwise meet all the requirements of the hearing (for example: to hear a witness at a hearing presided at by a judge).
- The parties must have obtained prior authorization, by telephone, from the judge assigned to hear the case (if known) or from the coordinating judge;
- At least five days before the hearing, the parties or their attorneys must contact the person responsible for audiovisual and electronic support at 819-822-6910, ext. 61604 to make the necessary technical arrangements.
