I couldn’t agree more! But here’s my question: how can I be paperless in court? I haven’t been to a hearing (yet), but the time is approaching. I don’t think I can even bring my cell phone to court, much less a laptop. What do you do?
I did have one bailiff tell me to shut off my computer at counsel table. I politely informed him the judge that my computer contained my entire file, and he quickly granted permission. Other than that one time, I have never had a problem.
However, if you are going to be presenting exhibits or showing anything to the judge, make sure to bring copies on paper, unless you know the courtroom is equipped with a projector and extra monitors for the judge and jury, like the federal courtrooms in Minnesota.
Looking forward to seeing a podcast or webcast of the August event
Not sure I will be able to, since the presentation is for MCLE, but I will see what I can do. If not, I plan to do a (less exciting, I am sure) video for the blog at some point.
