Extract from Alaina Lancaster's article "How the California Supreme Court Transitioned to Remote Oral Arguments in Less Than a Month"
Unlike the U.S. Supreme Court, California’s high court is no stranger to streaming its oral arguments. The California Supreme Court has provided live webcasting of its oral arguments since May 2016, complete with English and Spanish captioning and hosting via cloud service provider Granicus. But when COVID-19 standing orders required the court to limit and distance attendees, court staff decided the crisis called for enhanced technology. And in less than a month, the court was ready to host its first fully remote oral arguments.
Jorge Navarrete, the clerk and court executive officer, recommended combining Dolby Voice Room with BlueJeans meeting and conferencing technology to allow both justices and counsel to participate remotely and adhere to the orders.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking.

CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
