Can I appear by telephone?

Telephonic hearings are special set by the Court Administrator. You can contact the Court Administrator, Johanna Ellis at 509-725-3081.

Appearance via telephone are granted by Judge Strohmaier on a case by case, hearing by hearing basis. Once granted, the Court Administrator will give you the conference line to call in for your hearing. The hearing will be conducted as a normal hearing with argument presented to Judge Strohmaier.

Please do not have any loud background noises (dogs, children, machinery, traffic, alarms, etc.) as it may interfere with the hearings. Also, if at all possible, please DO NOT use a speaker phone and speak directly into the phone.
