If the livestream goes down, will court stop?

The court is required to have an open courtroom. Our courtrooms are open to the public and livestreaming is only a way to increase transparency for the public. If the livestream feed goes down, the court will work as quickly as possible to restore the livestream but stopping court proceedings is up to the judge presiding over the case. The livestream is subject to available bandwidth and resources.

Local media outlets are also livestreaming from the courtroom while court is in session.
