What will happen when I get to court?
When you first enter the courthouse, you will go through a metal detector. You will be asked to put personal belongings in a tray and your handbag, briefcase or other objects may be put through an x-ray machine. Weapons, knives and any kind of sharp objects are prohibited. If you try to enter the courthouse with a weapon, etc., it will be confiscated and you may be arrested. This is for the security and safety of everyone in the courthouse. You will then be directed to the jury room (M2400) where you will be checked in by a jury clerk and given attendance. You will be directed to take a seat after which the orientation will take place.
