Electronic Devices in the Courtrooms

Electronic Devices (i.e. tablets, laptops, cell phones, etc.) will be allowed in the courtroom at the Second District Court of Appeal but may only be used for court business.
Devices must be:

  • Silenced and placed in “airplane mode”*
  • Powered off

No Audio or Video recording or the taking of photographs is allowed unless approved pursuant to California Rules of Court, Rule 1.150. Any person who fails to comply with these restrictions will be 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.
