Oral Argument Calendars

Policy on Electronic Devices in the Courtroom
Laptop computers and electronic tablets may be used in the courtroom but must be:

  • silenced at all times
  • placed in “airplane mode”* at all times

Such devices may be used by counsel or self-represented litigants only as an aid in presenting oral argument and cannot be used to display demonstrative evidence to the court or for any other purpose.

Cellular telephones and other electronic devices are not permitted in the courtroom. No audio or video recording or photography is permitted in the courtroom except in compliance with California Rules of Court, Rule 1.150. Failure to comply with this policy will result in the violator being removed from the courtroom.

*Airplane Mode is a setting that when activated, suspends the devices wireless features and limits interference with the courtroom sound system.
