Prospective Juror Fined In Los Angeles

A prospective juror was sleepy and bored in a court. He yawned too loud that got the Judge to notice, the Philadelphia Inquirer mentioned, and asked him why he did that?

The prospective juror said that he is boring. For that, he was fined up to $1,000 for contempt. And when the prospective juror barked with some support from others, the fine was reduced to $100.

Some prosecutors, lawyers and spectators claimed that the judges dozed, yawned and stuff like that -- why single this juror out?

Bet you a dollar that this judge is Republican.
