Clark County Regional Justice Center Videoconferencing

Our good friend Chuck Short, Court Administrator in Clark County, Nevada passed along this press release by Michael Sommermeyer.

The District Court has successfully started the court's first transcontinental trial in Department 17 by linking the courtroom with a remote site in Boston, Mass by video conference.

The videoconferencing trial, presided over by Judge Stefany Miley, allows a bed-confined defendant to participate in the proceedings through a two-way video link using court cameras and the Internet. The proceedings continue today.

This success was made possible by the efforts of Wayne Slater, Justice Court, David DeBoef, County Information Technology and Brian Gilmore, DC Assistant Court Administrator.

For more information please contact Michael Sommermeyer, Court Information Officer, Eighth Judicial District Court Las Vegas Township Justice Court, Regional Justice Center at: (702) 671-4534,
