Requesting Court-issued Press Identification

Courtrooms generally are open to the public, so journalists do not need special credentials, other than a government-issued photo identification (such as a driver's license) to get into District Court of Puerto Rico facilities.

However, court-issued Press Identification is required to enter any District Court of Puerto Rico courthouses with a cell phone or electronic device. Journalists with a court-issued press identification may use those devices in the designated press room space, if available. Cell phones are not permitted in courtrooms without prior authorization of the presiding judge.
