Welcome to the official web site of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. This site is designed to provide convenient and easy access to information about the court and its operations.

The navigation buttons to the left lead to specific information. For example, the Court Locations button provides information about the four divisions of this district: Alexandria, Newport News, Norfolk, and Richmond. These Pages include directions for driving to the courthouses and information about parking and mass transportation.

Other buttons permit the downloading of the Local Rules, commonly used forms, and the court's fee schedule. Juror information will be posted shortly.

Because of extensive public interest in United States of America v. Zacarias Moussaoui, Cr. No. 01-455-A, we have created a special site providing information about that case and other notable cases, including all pending motions and scheduled hearing dates. The Notable Cases button to the left provides a link to that site.

Information about United States of America v. John Phillip Walker Lindh case is now available under our Notable Cases section.

Thank you for taking the time to visit this web site.

Honorable Claude M. Hilton, Chief Judge

Elizabeth H. Paret, Clerk of the Court
