Florida Courts rely more on VC during inclement weather
As bad weather and dangerous driving conditions have impacted most of the country, businesses and schools have shut down to ensure the safety of staff, students and potential patrons. Not the Panama City, FL. court system. On January 30th, 2014, and in an effort to minimize the requirements of travel in poor weather conditions, Panama City officials ordered all hearings on that day to be conducted via videoconference. Parties and legal counsel were given the option to appear in the courtrooms in Tallahassee or Panama City, Florida, or simply participate in the proceedings via live videoconferencing.
The use of VC technology by the courts continues to expand – from depositions and witness interviews to now helping to circumvent the power of Mother Nature, the use of videoconferencing technology continues to prove beneficial and a necessary tool for today’s courtroom environment.
