often for training, "clean power" outlets should also be provided to accommodate the
use of computers and other sensitive electronic equipment.

transmission must be provided as designated by the court.

Judges' Robing Room
The judges' robing room is an ancillary facility for USCA courtrooms. USCA judges
use the robing room to don and remove judicial robes before and after courtroom
User capacity varies according to the number of USCA judges and the type of
courtroom (i.e., en banc or panel).
Adjacency and Circulation
The judges' robing room must be directly accessible from the associated courtroom
through a soundlock; it must also be accessible from a restricted circulation area. To
provide a processional path from the courtroom to the robing room to the conference
room, a robing room may also directly adjoin the USCA judges' conference room. For
additional information regarding adjacency and circulation related to robing rooms, see
the USCA SRAC diagrams in Chapter 4.
