The Akron Municipal Court will be closed on Wednesday, June 19, 2024 in honor of Juneteenth. Regular hours will resume on Thursday, June 20, 2024.

Standard Courtroom Equipment 

The court has equipment integrated into each courtroom for attorney use.

In each courtroom, the following equipment is available to be used by counsel.  

  • Wall Mounted Displays 
  • HDMI inputs at each counsel table
  • Lumens PS752 Document Camera 
  • Public Wifi
  • Wireless Content Sharing via Crestron AirMedia
  • Video Conferencing 

If your laptop or tablet does not have an HDMI port or a way to present wirelessly, it is your responsibility to bring the necessary adapters with you for the scheduled trial or hearing.

Do not unplug or make any changes to the courtroom equipment.  If there are issues, counsel needs to inform the Judge's personal bailiff.

Testing Your Equipment

Counsel shall contact the Judge’s personal bailiff at least one week prior to the scheduled trial date to schedule an appointment to test equipment in the courtroom.  Each Judge's bailiff will then make arrangements with Court IT to ensure the equipment will work in the courtroom.

Court IT personnel are not permitted to assist with troubleshooting laptops or tablets.  Counsel must contact their own support with any technical issues.

Additionally, it is recommended to test your presentation 30 minutes before the hearing is scheduled to make sure everything is operational.

Make sure to test all aspects of your presentation, including:

  •  Audio
  •  Video
  •  Font size/scaling

The Court provides use of courtroom technology as a courtesy to court participants and will make every effort to ensure the equipment works properly. However, the Court does not guarantee the reliability of the equipment and is not responsible for the user negligence or lack of operational knowledge. The user agrees to hold the Court harmless for any failure of the equipment and any and all claims, damages, actions, causes of action, suits in equity (whatever kind of nature) as a result of the use of the equipment. The Court is not responsible for delays caused by failure of equipment.

*Users of courtroom technology should have back-up material suitable for use in the courtroom in the event of equipment failure.*
