New Local Rule in Middle District of Tennessee Federal Court on Use of Electronic Devices

The United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee has released a new administrative order concerning the use of laptops, cell phones and other electronic devices in the federal courthouses in the Middle District.

The devices have to go through the screening process and cannot be used in courtrooms without permission.  Laptops and electronic calendering devices can be used in the courtroom unless the presiding judge prohibits there use.

One more thing to think about before going to federal court.
