Basic Rules of Conduct
If you are appearing in court, you should dress nicely and in a manner that shows respect for the court. The following items are not permitted in the courtroom:
Process For Entry
Everyone must go through security prior to entering the courtroom. In most cases, you will be able to walk through a metal detector, or an officer will use a wand to check for prohibited items. You should permit the officer to search all bags, packages or personal belongings that will be taken into the courtroom. If you refuse to cooperate, you may be denied entry to your hearing.
The public is hereby notified that as this is a court of law, the Court will not allow distractions to invade, interrupt, or otherwise disturb the dignity and solemnity of court proceedings. As court generally is not an appropriate place for children, the Court strongly encourages parents and guardians to seriously consider whether it is necessary for a child to attend court. When a child is present in court, he or she should not present a distraction to the Court’s orderly function and processes.
