Law firm challenging ban on electronics at Saginaw County Courth - ABC 12 – WJRT – Flint, MI

Law firm challenging ban on electronics at Saginaw County Courthouse

SAGINAW (WJRT) -

(01/20/14) - A Mid-Michigan law firm says it's challenging a ban on cell phones and other electronics at the Saginaw County Courthouse.

The new rules went into effect last month. Visitors must get a permit to bring their phones, tablets and other electronics into the building.

County officials say it's an effort to increase security, but a Saginaw-based law firm, Outside Legal Counsel, filed a federal lawsuit, saying the ban is unconstitutional and wants a judge to issue a temporary injunction to stop it.
