Morning Edition, March 3, 2006 · This may explain why the Supreme Court doesn't allow cameras in the courtroom. The Court heard arguments this week over Congressional districts in Texas. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared to be intently reading something during the arguments. Close observation showed she was really napping. According to Bloomberg News, the snooze lasted fifteen minutes.
Rumpole Recalls: Judge Maginnis (rest in peace) used to fall asleep in trial all the time as well. We always knew his talents were under appreciated in Dade.
Anybody have any dirt on Dade Judges napping on the Job?
