Courtroom Rules

  • Mobile devices must be turned off before entering the courtroom.
  • Please provide advance notice when you require teleconferencing, intend to utilize the courtroom's video displays, or have other presentation technology questions.
  • Attorneys and parties should conduct themselves with decorum and manners. This is primarily for your own benefit: jurors, courtroom staff, and public observers consistently state that they prefer a civil and collegial relationship between opposing parties and counsel.


Judge Armistead prefers to handle discovery disputes informally. Under FRCP 16(b)(3)(B)(v), a party must request a conference with Judge Armistead before moving for an order relating to discovery. To request a conference or Judge Armistead’s assistance, the parties should jointly e-mail Courtroom Deputy Pam Geringer. If needed, Judge Armistead will schedule a telephonic hearing and require the parties to summarize in writing the particular nature of the dispute.

If the parties anticipate they will need Judge Armistead’s help in resolving a deposition dispute, they should contact Pam Geringer to advise her of the upcoming deposition date and time.
