Rules and Advice
Every day many court employees in every court in every state are bombarded with questions about courts, procedures, judges, and cases. Most court employees have been told they cannot give legal advice when answering questions. Many courts have posted signs informing the public that employees of the court are not allowed to give legal advice. And probably every court support employee in every court in every state has, at one time or another, repeated the phrase, “I’m sorry. I’m not allowed to give legal advice.”
