    ANNOUNCEMENT

    Regarding Hearings Before the Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi

    (Effective for all hearings on and after December 17, 2021)

    Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and uncertainty as to the impact of the Omicron variant, until further notice all hearings before Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi will be held entirely on Zoom and in-person attendance will not be permitted, notwithstanding Judge Sontchi’s chambers procedures to the contrary.  For the avoidance of doubt, all testimony will be via Zoom, including cross-examination and re-direct.
