On Sept. 1, Chief Justice Susan Christensen signed an order granting judicial discretion regarding remote technology in certain juvenile proceedings.

The order states that through Dec. 31, juvenile courts may order any proceedings filed under Iowa Code Chapters 232 and 600A (child-in-need-of-assistance adjudications, dispositional hearings and termination of parental rights) may be conducted with the parties or participants appearing remotely by video conference or telephone.
