CourtCall's Services Will Allow Illinois Courts to Meet Illinois Supreme Court Guidelines

LOS ANGELES - May 22, 2020 - (

​​CourtCall’s remote appearance platform is already in use in courts across Illinois. Illinois courts need not resort to untested technologies or mass-market solutions that do not meet the needs of the courts. The valuable and increasingly limited time of judges and courtroom staff should not be spent on hours of training and manipulating technologies during court proceedings.  While many judges and staff are willing to undertake the additional work, those models are simply not sustainable.

“On May 20, 2020, the Illinois Supreme Court issued guidelines on how courts should approach reopening and further commented on the need for remote appearances. In particular, Section IV. Rethinking Court Appearances indicates the need for remote appearances in almost every case type.  Forward-thinking courts, attorneys and the public have enjoyed the benefits of remote appearances for years. Only CourtCall has the experience to support the expanded usage that will arise and CourtCall already allows for fully remote audio and/or video participation for all participants,” said Bob Alvarado, CourtCall’s CEO. “Now courts are evaluating CourtCall’s services well-beyond using the platform for Motions, Status Conferences, Case Management Hearings and countless other daily hearings in Civil, Family, Probate, Criminal, Juvenile, Adoptions and Mental Health cases,” Alvarado continued.

CourtCall’s services have been used in courts across the nation for virtually any type of remote hearing, including:

Remote Traffic Court

Remote Arraignment and First Appearance Court

Bail hearings.


Mandatory and Voluntary Settlement Conferences.

Arbitrations and Mediations.

“Illinois judges, court administrators, attorneys and the public can turn to CourtCall now for solutions that are already in place and are combined with more than two decades of experience. Virtual galleries, entirely private sessions where confidentiality is required, immediately and easily available subconferences for private breakout rooms and hallway conferences and electronic signature with DocuSign are part of the CourtCall offering, in addition to the common screen sharing, chat and document sharing found on other mass-market platforms. CourtCall has already built precisely the services noted in the guidelines. There simply is no reason for courts to engage in experimentation when our service can typically be in place in hours or days,” Alvarado concluded.

Jun 5, 2020

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev resigned his post after Putin announced the proposed constitutional amendments.

The shakeup sent shock waves through Russia's political elites who were left pondering what Putin's intentions were and speculating about future Cabinet appointments. Putin’s proposed constitutional reforms, announced...

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Jun 5, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jun 5, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jun 5, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
