General District Court Courtroom Technology Reservation Form


The Fairfax County General District Court has multimedia evidence systems available for court use. The systems enable attorneys to present evidence simultaneously to everyone in the courtroom through a network of monitors and flat screen televisions or solely with the use of a television and DVD/VCR.  For more information about courtroom technology, please visit the Courtroom Technology Office (CrTO) website.

Orientation prior to use of the equipment is strongly encouraged. Please email the General District Court IT Department at GDC-Helpdesk@fairfaxcounty.gov to set up an appointment. If you need to bring your own equipment to the courthouse, please call (703) 246-3279 to clear it with security.

Attorneys interested in reserving a technology courtroom must fill out and submit the form below, all fields are required. You should receive a response to the request within 72 hours of submitting it at which point it will be reviewed. You will be notified whether it has been granted or denied shortly thereafter. There is a 5 business day minimum for requests.  Requests submitted within 5 business days may not be able to be accommodated.  The systems are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The systems are run by the attorneys, not by court staff.

Should the case settle or be continued it is the responsibility of the attorney to submit a cancellation form. A new reservation form will be required for the new continued date.

Failure to adhere to these policies may jeopardize future use of courtroom technology.
