Courtroom Standards

While your case is proceeding through the court system, please observe the following standards:

  • No weapons are permitted in the Green Valley Justice Court.
  • Sit quietly in the courtroom whenever court is in session. The proceedings are being recorded and background noise may interfere with the quality of the digital record.
  • Reading newspapers in the courtroom, particularly if this causes a distraction, generally is not allowed.
  • When addressing the Judge, stand a few feet back from the bench. Do not lean on the bench.
  • No cell phones, food, drink or gum chewing is allowed in the courtroom.
  • Smoking is prohibited by law in all areas of government buildings. When you are
    free to leave the courtroom, you will find smoking areas available outside the
    court building.
  • Avoid bringing small children to court. If you must, please monitor their behavior
    so that they remain quiet at all times. Parents may be asked to leave the
    courtroom if their child becomes noisy or unruly.
  • Please wear suitable clothing to court. It is inappropriate to enter the court unless
    you are wearing a shirt and shoes. T-shirts that carry offensive slogans or
    pictures are not allowed. Hats should be removed before entering a courtroom.
  • Under some circumstances, a defendant may be booked into jail immediately
    after a court appearance. In such cases, provisions should be made in advance
    for care of children.
