Laptops allowed in housing court?

Can laptops be used in housing court, to aid in case presentation?

What about projectors?

I have had a laptop in HC, but only used it in the hallway, not the courtroom. Cameras are confiscated at security on the first floor and held until one leaves.

As for case presentation, that implies a trial. I don't know the rules on that, but you should distinguish between using a laptop to refer to notes, or the introduction of evidence. With the latter, one should refer to the rules of evidence. If you have documents, I would think hard copies would be required.
