The IT Department will coordinate any necessary installation of equipment in the courtroom.

Things to Consider

  • The court encourages attorneys to share technology equipment when possible.
  • Technology equipment must not interfere with the line of sight for the judge or jury.
  • Our courtrooms have limited electrical outlets available.
  • You need to provide carpeted mats or gaffer's tape to secure cables crossing the floor, to minimize creating a tripping hazard.
  • Printers are not allowed in the courtrooms.
  • Telephone and network connections are not available in courtrooms.

Video Conferencing

St. Louis County Court provides video conferencing capabilities between the courtroom or, at the judge's discretion, a video conference room and the remote witnesses(s).

Video conferencing can be facilitated between PCs, Apple computers, tablets and mobile phones.

In order to provide the best possible service, we ask that you schedule a test call between the witness(es) and the court at least one day prior to the scheduled court date.

The Court will need email addresses of all video conferencing participants prior to the test call being conducted. You may enter them below if available.

Note: provided email addresses will remain confidential and will not be shared unless expressly authorized.
