SUPERIOR COURT OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
WASHINGTON, D.C. 20001-2131
DUANE B. DELANEY, ESQUIRE
CLERK 0'- THE COURT
October 13, 2011Mr. John Cummings, ChiefFelony Major Crimes SectionUnited States Attorney's Office555 4
th
Street, NW, Room 3132Washington, DC 20001Dear Mr. Cummings,Please be advised that I have recently received a number of complaints from summoned grand jurors claiming that they were denied admission to your building because they possessed some form ofpersonal technology. These citizens were reportedly told that they had to immediately store allpersonal technology items in their cars or return them to their homes. It is my understanding thatduring down time your office previously permitted grand jurors the use of laptops, DVD players, iPods,iPads ,PDAs and cellphones without a camera function. I am aware that in the past any type of cameraor technology with a camera function was logged in at the security desk upon arrival and returned to the juror at the end of the day's session. I am unaware of any official policy changes related to theacceptance of personal technology in your office and therefore summer-ed c.tlzens are inconveniencedunnecessarily by this lack of current information. Since many citizens refer to the Court's website andinitially report to the Juror Office in the Moultrie Courthouse, they need to be made aware of any newpolicies before they report. From a customer service perspective I trust you agree that as a grand juror,it is only fair that these citizens be appropriately informed beforehand about current policies andprocedures related to the use of personal technology. The Court's web site and the grand juryhandouts provided in the Jurors Office clearly need to be updated to reflect your current policies asexpeditiously as possible. Please provide me with your current official policies related to acceptanceand use of personal technology by grand jurors. I will see to it that the information is updated andpassed on to the citizens summoned for grand jury service.Thank you for your attention to this important matter.Sincerely,
, . . - - -
