Zoom Court Proceedings: If you are scheduled for a court proceeding being held via Zoom and do not have the ability to do this, the Circuit Clerk has a public access terminal set up in the Law Library at the courthouse. We have a web camera/mic that we will set up for your use so you may participate in your proceeding. This public access terminal is available to anyone who needs access to court cases, do research, e-file, etc. Come into our office 15-20 minutes prior to your hearing time, and we will be happy to set you up.
