Cell phone ban in district court not fair to the poor

The cell phone ban in district courts creates problems for low-income clients, Maryland Legal Aid senior attorney Susan Tannenbaum told the Daily Record in an article published earlier this week. “If you’re not familiar with the court system, there’s no reason to suspect you can’t bring your cell phone,” said Susan, who warns her clients about the ban. “Clearly it’s not fair to my clients because without knowing about [the cell phone ban] in advance, they possibly might not be able to defend themselves in court.”
