Not in My Courtroom!
Drop your weapons ... and your cell phones!So, you think Judge Judy is tough? Get a load of Judges Ray McKoski and Edmund Bart of Chicagos19th Judicial Circuit Court. When theyre not busy cracking down on crime, theyre taking a gavel to cell phones and other annoying devices. If youre one of those wireless people who cant let go of a pocket organizer or mobile device, do not, repeat not, end up in their courts.
Judge McKoski talks tough. He finds cell phones to be "very detrimental to the jury or a judge to reach a fair decision." Woe to anyone whose phone rings in his court, because you can be certain that stern words will be aimed in your direction.
