I am posting the “Decorum Order” from the Pennsylvania court outlining the rules for the upcoming Sandusky trial.
In light of my post last week, it is clear courts are making an effort to control the use of electronic devices within the courtrooms, especially cell phones. In this case, the public will not be allowed to bring any electronic devices into court.
This order appears to have been a collaborative effort with our PA members. I will ask them to share the tips and strategies they used during their discussions with the court. Every high profile trial will have restrictions on electronic devices going forward and we can all learn from the PA experience.
