There is a significantly large docket on Wednesday August 29th similar to the docket that we had on August 15th that caused a major backlog for individuals entering the court house.  Please make sure you advise your clients to arrive a little earlier and to make sure they have their picture ID and do not have cell phones, knives, etc. or their pockets full of items that have to be removed in order to clear the screening station.  
Attorneys should also plan to arrive earlier, however, we have asked the CSOs to allow attorneys that they recognize to proceed through security without having to remove shoes, etc.  If you have a Government Plaza attorney ID card, display it as it will assist the CSOs in confirming that you are an attorney if they are not familiar with you.  Place your loose items in your briefcases, etc since they will go through screening as usual.  If you have any questions about this, contact the court in advance.
