A 45-year-old New York law is holding up autonomous vehicles-engadget

In New York state, legislators are worried a law from 1971 could be a roadblock for autonomous vehicles in the near future. As the New York Daily News reports, the state is the only one in the country that requires drivers to keep at least one hand on the steering wheel while driving.

Attention Northern District of New York Federal Bar:   

General Order #26  has been amended effective May 23, 2016.

In the Matter of Courthouse Security and Limitations on the use of Electronic Devices within United States Courthouses in the Northern District of New York 

The main change to the General Order is below. The intent is to help expedite the screening of members of the bar.

Screening and Search. All persons entering a federal courthouse in this district and all items carried by them are subject to appropriate screening and search by a United States Marshal, Court Security Officer, or any law enforcement officer. Persons may be requested to provide identification and to state the nature of their business in the courthouse. Anyone refusing to cooperate with these security measures may be denied entrance to the courthouse. Members of the Northern District Bar that present a valid New York State Court System Identification appearing for a proceeding before the Court will be allowed to retain their cell phones and computers following screening.
