Must you stand when a judge enters his courtroom?
Is there a law or is it merely a custom. Does 'All rise' carry any penalties for not complying, such as contempt of court?
Is the answer applicable to Federal Grand Jury duty as well as state and local courts? I'm due to serve commencing Monday, February 14, 2005. I hope to have an answer before then. I called the court help line but no one there knew the answer.
