A friend had to go to court today and had to look up online if the court they were going to allowed or prohibited phones. I've read that a lot of court houses have banned phones for non-personnel due to people taking photos of kids in juvenile court, witnesses, and jurors.

What's everyone here think? Is a total ban justified or could there be some compromise like maybe people could just be told to turn their phones off when they enter the court room proper?

Thanks.

Tappin' and talkin' with Tapatalk.
