The Southern District of Ohio is participating in a pilot program to livestream audio of certain civil proceedings involving matters of public interest with the consent of the parties. Trials and civil proceedings involving live witness testimony, or sealed, confidential, or classified materials are excluded from the pilot.
The hearings are streamed live on the Court’s YouTube channel. Audio recordings will be available for playback on YouTube after proceedings have ended for up to one year.

The Judicial Conference of the United States, the national policy-making body for the federal courts, has authorized this pilot program. The pilot will be administered by the Judicial Conference’s Court Administration and Case Management Committee and the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts and will be used to study the feasibility of livestreaming audio of district court civil, bankruptcy, U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and U.S. Court of International Trade proceedings.
The pilot program is limited to certain civil and bankruptcy proceedings involving matters of public interest. Visit the JCUS Audio Streaming Pilot Page for more information about the pilot program, official guidelines, and links to other participating pilot courts.
