When the COVID-19 pandemic hit Indiana in March 2020, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana was faced with the challenge of continuing to administer justice in a safe but effective manner. Amidst a backdrop of stay-at-home orders and rising infection rates, the District Court developed new processes to conduct proceedings remotely. Using videoconference technology and telephonic conferencing, the District Court successfully balanced the need for the continuation of critical proceedings with public safety.
In this hourlong CLE, Chief Judge Jane E. Magnus-Stinson, District Judge James R. Sweeney II, District Judge James Patrick Hanlon, Magistrate Judge Debra McVicker Lynch, and Magistrate Judge Mark J. Dinsmore will reflect on their experiences during the pandemic. They will ruminate on the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of working and conducting court from home, will discuss the pros and cons of videoconference proceedings and telephonic settlement conferences, and offer tips and tricks for attorneys as they continue to navigate these types of proceedings in federal court.
