What should I wear and how should I act in court?

Since all Court proceedings are recorded, courtrooms must be quiet. Everyone is asked to be quiet and respectful of those whose proceedings are being heard. There are no childcare facilities provided by the court. Children who become noisy will be required to stay in the hall outside the courtroom under adult supervision. Suitable attire is required, shoes and shirts are necessary. Hats are to be removed upon entering the Courtroom. No smoking, food, or drink will be allowed. You do not need to check with the Clerk unless your name is not on the list.
