Live Hearings Audio Only

The Tulare County Superior Court allows audio only public access to in-court proceedings via live stream. The availability of this access is at the discretion of the judge and typically used in the courtroom when physical public access is limited or unavailable.

Court proceedings may not be photographed, recorded, or broadcast without specific written authorization by the Court.

Persons granted remote access to proceedings are reminded of this general prohibition and the need to obtain specific written permission to record a remote hearing. Violation of these prohibitions is an unlawful interference with the proceedings of the Court and may be the basis for an order terminating media coverage, a citation for contempt of court, or an order imposing monetary or other sanctions as provided by law. (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 1.150(f).)

Violations may also constitute a criminal offense under Penal Code section 632.7, which includes punishment by a fine not exceeding two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500), or by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, or in the state prison, or by both a fine and imprisonment.
