The Court strongly encourages interested parties to attend a session in person.  The Court anticipates a colloquy with those in attendance.  Nevertheless, if you are unable to be present in person, the Court will allow persons to view the power point presentation, and to listen to the presentation.  You will not be able to ask questions over the telephone.  The power point will be viewable at the "Join.Me" website.  After you go to that website, click on "Join Meeting". The Code for the meeting is "JudgeIsgur".  The dial-in telephone number is 712-432-3100.  The conference room number is 815978.
