For lawyers and participants, registration and reservations are free. Once you dial into a call, the cost is generally a flat fee between $50 - $70 depending on the court. The cost is the flat fee per reservation per judge per day. If the hearing is adjourned for a break and you rejoin the call later that day, there is no additional charge to rejoin the call. If the hearing is continued to another day, lawyers and participants will need to re-register and the flat fee will apply again when you dial in.
If you don't show up for your hearing, you don't pay the fee. The Judge will have you listed as having made a reservation, but you are not charged.
If you are a pro se, trustee or member of the media during the COVID-19 emergency, please see here for information about a fee waived account.
The flat fee is $70 in all jurisdictions except for the following jurisdictions where it is $50:
-Northern District of Illinois
-Southern District of Florida
-District of New Jersey
-Eastern District of New York
