Exterior service windows will remain open for traffic and collections, and interior service windows will be available for all other case types. Per local rule, e-filing is mandatory for most case types and permissive for others. The self-help center will expand services to include appointments in-person or by Zoom and open office hours for drop-in services Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The public should consult the court’s website, www.yolo.courts.ca.gov, for further information on in-person and Zoom appearances. “Remote appearance allowed the court to stay open and functioning during the pandemic,” Presiding Judge Daniel P. Maguire said. “The public health crisis is now receding, but we’ve learned how technology can expand access to justice, and we will continue to give all court users the option to appear by video for most non-evidentiary hearings.” “There have been many benefits to the virtual calendars including saving time traveling to and from the courthouse for appearances,” Maguire added. “We’re happy to give court users the option to appear remotely and believe that remote appearance offers many benefits in appropriate cases.”
