WHY ZOOM?


On April 17, 2020 the Missouri Supreme Court issued an Order to the Courts of Missouri regarding the continued mandate to cease all in-person hearings due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Within that order, the use of video conferencing was encouraged to ensure the continued access to justice for the public to the judicial system. As of July 1, 2020 the Municipal Divisions within the 21st Judicial Circuit remain closed to in-person contact under the administrative authority of the Presiding Judge. Until such time as we are able to resume hearings at this location we have chosen to proceed in an electronic format as approved by the Missouri Supreme Court. Both Zoom and WebEx have been vetted by the State for use in judicial proceedings. We are currently operating with the assistance of Zoom due to the ease of functions for all those involved.
