Court Etiquette Archives

Can you use your cell phone in the courtroom?

Today it seems that cell phone use is acceptable everywhere.  The courtroom, however, is one of the last few remaining places where cell phone usage is severely limited by law--not just etiquette.  If you find yourself in a courtroom either as a litigant, juror, or observer you need to know the rules when it comes to using your cell phone. The last thing you need to happen while court is in session is to have your cell phone ring and get more than dirty looks in return.  The judge can impose fines or eject a person from the courtroom due to use of an electronic device that is not in accordance with the local rules.
