Update on OCC Hearings, courtroom status

The first floor courtrooms at the Jim Thorpe Building will continue to be open for protested oil and gas hearings. Specific details are outlined in the memo below, issued Aug. 6, 2021.

Not all first floor courtrooms will be open after the Jim Thorpe Building reopens to the public, in order to practice social distancing. 

  • OCC staff will work to accommodate as many in-person hearings as space and safety will allow. 
  • We will continuously monitor and adjust as circumstances arise. 
  • We will make overflow rooms or remote locations available for those who want to watch proceedings in courtrooms where social distancing needs cannot be accommodated.
  • The administrative law judge (ALJ) will work with the parties to ensure attorneys, witnesses and other interested individuals can be best accommodated.
  • Uncontested oil and gas hearings will continue to use the OCC’s audio and video systems until further notice.
  • All other ALJ/Referee hearings will be heard as determined in preliminary or prehearing order and/or by agreement of the parties.
