As in any other court of law, there are rules of conduct by which every person appearing or attending must abide by. These rules of conduct are set out for the civility of the court process, so that all persons in attendance are given a fair atmosphere in which to present their case. All persons in attendance should present themselves in a decent matter and shall be civil at all times.
-NO WEAPONS ARE ALLOWED IN THE COURT ROOM (except bailiffs and police officers)
-NO SMOKING IN THE COURT ROOM
-NO OBSCENE OR VULGAR LANGUAGE IN THE COURT ROOM
-ALL ELECTRONIC DEVICES SHOULD BE TURNED OFF OR SILENCED
Pro Se parties (individuals representing themselves without an attorney) should be prepared to present their cases in a proper matter. It is not the Court's duty or responsibility to protect or represent you, or instruct you on court procedures, evidence, rules, or how to present and prove your case. If you are unprepared, unaware, and/or not knowledgeable as to presenting your case, you may lose your case.
