WIRELESS ACCESS FOR ATTORNEYS
Wireless service is available in each courtroom, adjacent lobby, attorney lounge and chambers. Service is provided after requesting access from the presiding Judge (see request form).
Wireless Service provided "AS IS". This service provides access to the Internet on an "as is" basis with all risks inherent in such access. The providers of the service make no warranty that the service or that any information, software, or other material accessible on the service is free of viruses, worms, trojan horses or other harmful components. By connecting, the user acknowledges and accepts the risks associated with public access to the Internet and public use of an unsecured wireless network.
Wireless service provided "AS AVAILABLE". The service is provided on an "as available" basis without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, that the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free. No advice or information given by the providers, affiliates, or contractors of the service or their representative employees shall create such warranty.
It is the patron’s responsibility to ensure that their equipment is functioning and properly configured. The Court will provide written instructions on how to connect to this network. However, Court staff cannot provide any technical help with configuring user equipment.
Because this is a shared resource, the speed of the connection may vary depending on, but not limited to, factors such as distance from the access point, the number of users currently connected, the status of the patron’s equipment, etc. To ensure the best availability and performance, any connection inactive for 10 minutes will be automatically logged out.
Once completed, the form will be emailed to the appropriate Courtroom Deputy. The Courtroom Deputy will process the form through the presiding judge for approval. Approved request forms will be emailed to the IT department for setup and login information.
The Courtroom Deputy will communicate with the Delaware counsel in response to the request.

CELL PHONE USE BY ATTORNEYS
Note from the Standing Order to the right that attorneys are now allowed to bring cell phones, laptops and tablets into the courthouse – so long as they can present to the Courthouse Marshalls both a state bar association card (Delaware or otherwise) and a valid form of picture identification. Note also that “[u]se of a Device…that detracts…from the integrity of a proceeding may…result in confiscation…as well as other appropriate action.”
