Judge Nelson encourages parties to afford opportunities for junior attorneys and diverse attorneys to argue before the Court.
- Wireless communication devices must be placed in silent mode while in the courthouse. Recording devices may not be used at any time in the courthouse or in any court proceedings conducted remotely using telephone conferencing, video conferencing, or any other form of electronic communication.
- The parties should provide advance notice when they require teleconferencing, intend to utilize the courtroom’s video displays, or have other presentation technology questions.
- Attorneys and parties should conduct themselves with decorum and civility. This is primarily for their own benefit: jurors, courtroom staff, and public observers consistently state that they prefer a civil and collegial relationship between opposing parties and counsel.
