Cell Phone Ban At The Allen County Courthouse

Starting Tuesday, visitors to the Allen County Courthouse in Fort Wayne will have to leave their electronic devices, including cell phones, outside.

Signs warning of the coming ban have been up for months.

Officials say the ban is not just because of courtroom disruptions.

Some people have used camera phones to photograph jurors and witnesses .

While cell phones are held for you at Fort Wayne's Federal building while you are there, county court officials will not.

So, you will have to leave them in your car.

Certain attorneys and county employees will be exempt from the new rule.
