Wireless Internet Access for Attorneys and Jurors

The court offers publicly accessible wireless Internet access at all three of its locations. This wireless Internet access is mostly found in and just outside the courtrooms. The court does not guarantee access, availability or speed and does not provide technical support to users of the publicly available wireless network.

Assisted Listening Devices

All courtrooms (except the one in the 3030 Juvenile building) are equipped with wireless assisted listening devices. Jurors should request a device from the jury coordinator. Others should request a device from the courtroom clerk. All assisted listening devices must be returned to the courtroom clerk at the end of each day. Click here for a list of available devices.

Phone Conferencing

All courtrooms are equipped for as many as two external parties to appear by phone. If you would like to schedule a phone conference, please contact your judge’s office.
If you will be appearing by phone, please keep these recommendations in mind:
  • Use a landline whenever possible
  • If you must use a cell phone, do not use the speakerphone feature
  • Make sure you are in a quiet location

Video Conferencing

All courtrooms (except the one in the 3030 Juvenile building) are equipped with video conferencing systems. As many as three parties can appear remotely via video conference. The court is not responsible for securing equipment or a location for other parties to appear remotely via video conference.
In January 2014, the court began supporting parties who connect using a computer with an attached webcam, speakers and microphone. The court does not support FaceTime or Skype.
To schedule a video conference, please contact your judge’s office.

Courtroom Presentation

The court offers a presentation system in all courtrooms (except the two Juvenile courtrooms). These allow attorneys and pro se litigants to attach a laptop via HDMI or VGA and 3.5mm audio to show a laptop on the courtroom television(s). The courtrooms' recording system records any audio played back from connected laptops.
The court offers both an HDMI and a VGA/3.5mm audio cable in each courtroom, but attorneys and pro se litigants must provide their own laptop and any video adapters necessary for their laptops to connect to the presentation system.
The presentation system supports only Windows or Mac laptops. It does not support iPads, iPhones or any other mobile device.
