Court Room Policies and Procedures
- Exhibit Protocol
Mohave County Superior Court utilizes a Digital Evidence Portal (CaseLines) for the storage and presentation of evidence. If any party wishes to have exhibits used as evidence in a hearing or trial in this division, they must contact the Clerk’s Office by emailing MohaveDE@courts.az.gov to obtain the link to upload and review their exhibits.
Exhibits must be uploaded into CaseLines at least three days prior to an evidentiary hearing or trial to the Court and at least five days prior to a jury trial. For any objects which will be physical exhibits, there must be a placeholder exhibit in CaseLines (usually a photograph of the object). In addition to exhibits, any item which a party may use to impeach a witness should also be uploaded into CaseLines.
An upload into CaseLines digital evidence portal will NOT be considered disclosure. The parties must still comply with all disclosure deadlines.
The Court notes that some exhibits take longer to display in CaseLines. If an exhibit has too many pages, it might slow the presentation of evidence. Additionally, there are some kinds of video which buffer significantly and do not play well. It is the obligation of the parties to ensure that the exhibits can be properly presented utilizing CaseLines and the technology available in the courtroom.
Parties who are not familiar with CaseLines or have issues regarding the presentation of specific exhibits are encouraged to email the Clerk’s office at MohaveDE@courts.az.gov for questions about submission and presentation of evidence as soon as possible.

- Notice to Litigants Representing Themselves
Arizona Courts have long held that litigants, who chose to represent themselves, are held to the same standard as an attorney.
"It is well established that where a party conducts his case in propria persona he is entitled to no more consideration than if he had been represented by counsel, and he is held to the same familiarity with required procedures and the same notice of statutes and local rules as would be attributed to a qualified member of the bar. Copper State Bank v. Soggio, 139 Ariz. 438, 441 (App. 1983).
