For the first time in its history, the Indiana Supreme Court will hold oral arguments using videoconferencing when it hears cases in May.

That will honor social distancing guidelines during the ongoing public health emergency caused by coronavirus pandemic, it said Friday.

Two cases will be heard on May 14. Six more cases are scheduled for remote oral arguments on May 21 and May 27.

The Supreme Court says justices and attorneys will interact with each other using Zoom webconferencing software. The resulting video and audio will be available to the news media and the public on the court’s existing live-stream website.

Chief Justice Loretta Rush says the Supreme Court is meeting remotely several times a week, and is regularly handing down orders and opinions.
