The First District Court of Appeal will continue making a remote video option available to parties as a medium for conducting oral arguments.

The First DCA acted June 4 in Administrative Order 21-1 the same day Chief Justice Charles Canady issued an order allowing courts around Florida to lift requirements to wear masks and distance from others while in courtrooms during proceedings.

The First DCA’s order allows a party to request a remote video oral argument as part of its oral argument request filed pursuant to Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.320.
