Connecting Your Laptop in the Courtroom

The court is currently in the process of upgrading courtroom technology. This page covers not-yet-upgraded courtrooms, which include all Tacoma courtrooms except for that of Judge Ronald B. Leighton. If you are appearing before Judge Leighton or any Seattle judge, please see the upgraded technology pages.

Please note: If you intend to incorporate your laptop into the Courtroom Technology, you must provide your own VGA cable and audio cable (1/4 inch, male to male connector), if necessary. It is imperative you test your laptop with the courtroom's technology before the day of the appearance.

Seattle connections
There are input wells at each attorney table as well as at the podium. These input panels can be used to integrate your laptop computer into the courtroom technology so you can display your laptop's output on all courtroom monitors. All of the well lids on the attorney tables have been labeled with the appropriate PC number from the remote control.
