The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sheila K. Oberto United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER SETTING TRAINING SESSION FOR USE OF COURTROOM TECHNOLOGY DURING TRIAL
For purposes of presenting evidence during the course of the trial in this matter, the parties are advised that a training session with Court's Information Technology ("IT") personnel is set for Monday, May 6, 2013, at 3:00 in Courtroom 7. At this training session, the parties will receive instructions on how to utilize the courtroom technology for purposes of presenting documentary, video, or sound recording evidence.
The parties are further advised that any materials they wish to exhibit on courtroom television monitors must be done through their personal laptop computers. While the courtroom's technology will amplify sound and picture onto the television monitors through the use of a laptop computer, the laptop itself must be provided by counsel. The courtroom technology does not include the ability to play cassette tapes, DVDs, CDs, or other sound and video recordings; it can only project or amplify what is playable through a laptop computer. Additionally, the courtroom has no equipment to print a hard copy of any evidence projected onto the television monitors. The courtroom is equipped to project single pages of paper evidence onto the courtroom's television monitors.
Counsel are strongly encouraged to attend this training session and test any electronic equipment containing evidence they wish to display at trial.
Finally, as previously ordered on March 1, 2013, all trial submissions, which are limited to exhibits, discovery documents, and deposition transcripts, are to be submitted to the Court by no later than Monday, April 29, 2013. (See Doc. 188.)
IT IS SO ORDERED.
