Courtroom Technology

The new courtroom technologies play a very important role in our court proceedings. The benefits will allow for the presentation of evidence in different multi-media formats, plus the ability to annotate these items, and will allow the attorney the flexibility to exercise different options in presenting their evidence to the court.

The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas uses the Jury Evidence Recording System (JERS) to capture evidence electronically during a trial. The Court provides evidence presentation equipment to any member of the bar practicing within the Western District of Texas. Information on the system can be reviewed, below:
