Don't Ruin the Trial for Others

Judge Over Barrel in Niagra Falls .

This story caught my eye because not too long ago I happened to be in district court and my own cell phone rang. I thought I'd turned it off but I hadn't.

Instead of sending me to jail, the DJ gently chided me about it. Very judicious, I thought.

I was in court recently when my associate's phone rang. The judge snapped to attention and demanded to know whose it was. This poor young associate was horrified. I had to jump in and assure the judge that it was an oversight, and tell him that I had just sent her outside to call a witness, so it was my fault. It took a few minutes to mollify him, but it was a lesson that associate will never forget!
