Joining a Webinar by Phone or Other Connection
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are a case participant (attorney, party, witness, or other person who will actively participate in the hearing), it is strongly recommended that you join Zoom using the Zoom application rather than by a telephone connection. If you must appear by telephone, the numbers posted for each judge are for the public and are listen-only, so you will need to contact the Courtroom Deputy (CRD) at least one business day before the hearing to request a Zoom invitation (which will be sent via email) in order to join the hearing as a case participant.

Courtesy/Chambers Copy Requirements
The submission of chambers copies is often required for electronically filed documents. Whereas the local rules state whether and how soon chambers copies must be submitted, judges’ individual standing orders sometimes create additional requirements and may differ from the local rules in other particulars. If they are not in agreement, these orders supersede the local rules.
The pertinent parts of Judge Koh’s standing orders are set forth below:
All printed chambers copies must be double sided and must include the ECF header on each page.
All cases subject to E-filing requirements must submit a Chambers copy of all documents and electronically file all proposed orders. A printed chambers copy of any electronically filed document must be lodged with the Court the next court day following the day the documents were electronically filed. All proposed orders should be emailed in Microsoft Word format to: firstname.lastname@example.org the same day.
