Court Review, Volume 52, Issue 3 (2016)
The National Center for State Courts has produced four videos that can be used in training programs for judges and court personnel about procedural fairness. The videos explore how proceduralfairness principles may best be deployed in situations faced by judges and court staff. Four video scenarios are provided, and each one includes discussion questions and links to additional materials about the topic.
The four video scenarios are:
• The Multitasking Judge (5:18): A judge conducting a hearing on whether to modify a no-contact order in a pending domestic-violence case also signs a stack of routine orders during the hearing.
• The Counter Clerk and the Upset Litigant (2:42): A mother who has just received a court order taking away her children comes to the clerk’s front counter for information. The clerk may–or may not–be able to help.
