On Second Thought, CourtCall Use Seems Potentially Damaging to Testimony

The jury's out on whether court calling using www.CourtCall.com, rather then appearing at a hearing, is effective. It seems the courts make money from the court calls but I question whether it can be harmful to a person's case to appear that way. It's impersonal and difficult because there's no body language or communication cues. It's easy for a judge to be impersonal and treat you like a non-person as just a voice over a speaker phone.

I think maybe CourtCalls should be used sparingly by legal professionals and really important hearings should be attended in person. Court's don't care either way as long as they get their money. I really do think legal professionals should be careful overusing CourtCall to save on their travel expenses.
Hello, what was that you say? I can't hear you! Maybe it's because ya'll are descending into the pit of hell of a sinking failed state called California. That is, a state where the Mexican military just flies into its airspace without a care of the U.S. government. A state that's the worst in the country for public education. A state that has to give its court system a holiday each month because it can't afford to pay its BAD male chauvinist pig judges.
