(CMR) The Cayman Islands Judiciary has introduced for the first time the ability for the general public to view open court proceedings online. This is a historic first in the Cayman Islands and something that CMR has long advocated for.
Other jurisdictions around the world have long live-streamed court proceedings. Recently there was an entire trial in Florida that was held by way of a Zoom meeting with the parties all being at a different location.
In a press statement today they confirmed that:
ince members of the public and the press are unable to physically attend open court, starting today, 23 April 2020, judicial proceedings are streaming live. The live streaming began with the first case in the Court of Appeal, which session started today through remote video link.
To access, the public may visit the website HERE , available courtrooms will be displayed and from there interested parties can select the proceedings they wish to view.
To see open court cases, they may also wish to consult the judicial Cause Lists which are also published online.
