Re: Cell phones now allowed in Fairfax County courts?

They changed the policy this winter. You can bring in a phone, even a camera phone, but you cannot use it in the courtroom, and make sure you mute it (or put it in airplane mode or turn it off) when you're in the courtroom because they will confiscate it without giving you a warning. The only time you're allowed to use the camera is if you're at a marriage ceremony, although if you use it to scan a document via a scanner app you aren't likely to run into trouble as long as you're not in the courtroom.
