Attorney Identification (ID) Card

Members of the bar of the Northern District of Georgia may apply for an attorney photo ID card (also known as the “blue card”). Attorneys issued this card may bring cellular telephones with cameras and other electronic equipment into the federal courthouses of the Northern District of Georgia without a court order. For security reasons, to apply for a photo ID card, the attorney must visit the Human Resources Department in person at:

Richard B. Russell Federal Building and United States Courthouse
Room 2013
75 Ted Turner Drive, SW
Atlanta, GA 30303-3309

Absent unusual circumstances, an applicant should receive his or her ID card at the same time he or she applies for it. Although an ID card previously may have been issued with an expiration date, the card continues to be valid and accepted while the holder remains a member in good standing of the bar of the Northern District of Georgia. The card is issued by the U.S. Marshals Service and remains their property.
