In this timely article, Retired Judge Lynda B. Munro and Attorney Nicole M. Riel of Pullman & Comley's Family Law practice address the ongoing difficulty of virtual court proceedings in this country and abroad during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even as courts begin to reopen, many jurisdictions encourage or require judges to hold some of their proceedings by telephone or video conference, raising serious privacy, due process and credibility concerns. This article speaks to the ways the family bar can engage and address these concerns and how they impact clients' rights and safety.
