The Judicial Conference of the United States has authorized a pilot program permitting a limited number of district courts to livestream audio of certain proceedings in civil cases of public interest with the consent of the parties. The United States District Court for Kansas has been approved to participate in the pilot program. Hearings with live witness testimony, sealed or confidential information, and trials (bench and jury) are ineligible for livestreaming. Hearings determined to be appropriate for this program will have a notice of livestreaming docketed in the case and will be added to the district event’s calendar . Members of the public who wish to listen to the hearing may do so on the court’s YouTube channel, accessible at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBjiOzStW4rymaUrcIpJCjA/featured. The hearings will be livestreamed, but not recorded, and will only be accessible in real time. Please note the Court retains ultimate discretion to stop the livestreaming at any point during a hearing should any issues or concerns arise.
