Judge Ruth’s hearings are being conducted remotely. Hearings are being conducted either telephonically or via Zoom depending on the nature and complexity of the hearing. Judge Ruth’s clerk will automatically schedule a hearing upon filing of a motion, as has been his standard practice. The day before the hearing date the attorneys (or parties in cases of pro se litigants) will receive an email with an exact call-in time and number or a zoom invitation setting an exact time for the hearing. Any inquiries regarding hearing procedures should be directed to Judge Ruth via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org (all emails should be copied to the opposing side.)
