Coming to Court

When you come to court, you should be aware that weapons and other dangerous implements are forbidden in all courthouses. Second District courts screen all visitors. Bags will be inspected and you will be asked to pass through a metal detector. If the detector goes off, security may use a hand-wand to search for metal. The following items should not be brought into the courthouse:

  • Guns
  • Knives (including pen knives and key chain knives)
  • Scissors (including nail scissors)

If you intend to bring in audio or video media for the presentation of evidence, you should check our Courtroom Technology Resources page to see what hardware is available and what you need to do to arrange for it.
