Dear SSBA Members:
See the attached: CALENDAR 86 SPECIAL EMERGENCY ORDER NO. 2020-09. PLEASE NOTE THIS IMPORTANT CHANGE. I urge anyone practicing before me to read this new Order. There are changes from the prior emergency orders.
Most significantly, EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2021, I am eliminating my personal Zoom license that has been used on T/W&Th since March of 2020 (no more 9162079659), and I will only be utilizing the courtroom zoom license for Room 102, (984 2555 1477 Password 251765). This Zoom ID will be utilized Monday through Friday. We will continue to work on Zoom unless ordered otherwise in an individual case. No one should schedule a matter for an in-person proceeding without prior authorization from the court. 20210621 JUDGE BATES CALENDAR 86 SPECIAL EMERGENCY ORDER NO. 2020-09.pdf
