Courtroom Technology

**UPDATE 4/27/2020 - - In response to the recent outbreak of the COVID-19/Coronavirus in Western Washington, all in-person courtroom technology training is suspended indefinitely. Please visit our Remote Hearings Information page for information about online training for remote hearing participants.   

The court has equipment integrated into each courtroom for attorney use. During a proceeding, the judge's courtroom deputy is the primary contact for courtroom technology. Please be aware that any requested changes may need to be reviewed and approved by the judge prior to any changes being made. Contact the courtroom deputy with any change requests.

Knowing how to use the courtroom's equipment is the attorney's responsibility. Start with a general overview at the Courtroom Basics. On-site Training is available; see box to the right for details.
