What to expect: Bags are x-rayed and visitors must pass through a metal detector. Cellphones, cameras, recording devices and computers need to be checked in downstairs, unless you have a press pass. With media credentials you still have to surrender cameras and recording devices, bur can keep your cellphone, iPad or laptop, just not to be used in the court room. Court prohibits displays of messages (eg. "Justice 4 Jordan" T-shirts). Other than that it's simple. There are bathrooms and vending machines and an affordable cafeteria in the court.
