courts order

RUSTBURG, VA - Campbell County Courts have released an order pertaining to the use of portable electronic devices in the courthouse.  Portable electronic devices are defined to include: personal computers, tablets, mobile/cell phones, e-book readers, and smart watches.

The order is due to the Supreme Court of Virginia’s approval for a model policy for the use of portable electronic devices in courthouses and courtrooms in December of 2019. This ruling, the court said, "provides a proper balance between the interests of promoting access to justice, and maintaining security, safety and order in courthouses and courtrooms. The court recommends the model policy for consideration by the district courts and circuit courts of the commonwealth."
