I think the rule is loony. Members of the DC Bar can keep their devices on, and members of the VA or MD bars can't? If members of the DC Bar can leave their devices turned on, how (if at all) does the court propose to keep them from functioning in the courtroom - such as recording an oral argument or a judge's directive to counsel at a status conference?

There oughtta be a law, I'd say - and I mean a law that does what the court wants done.

I could be wrong, but isn't this a slightly more relaxed set of rules? i don't believe they allowed cell phones with cameras in the courthouse at all, and now it is more reasonable approach of "don't let us catch you using it in the courtroom" (with some exceptions, of course).

Current Affairs

Your blog has made aware that what are the rules which is going to adopt by the court to use the electronic devices like, cameras which we ill be using very frequently, tape record daily i am used to listen to it,we can be careful while using that keeping the rules of the court in view.
thank you for issuing such a great article
