Courtroom Decorum

Professional behavior best serves your clients and the Court. Note that the "Introductory Statement on Civility" published on page four of the Local Rules for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio has universal applicability. Individuals entering the courtroom must dress appropriately (no flip flops, pajamas, shorts, tank tops, or apparel with offensive content). All cell phones and other electric devices must be turned off or set to vibrate prior to entering the courtroom.
