It is silent on my phone, but it is a touch screen.

Key paragraph from the article:
She was summoned to court where Henriod ordered her immediately to jail for 30 days, responding to a request for bail with the condition that it would be allowed only if her husband paid a $70,000 judgment stemming from the civil dispute, Jackson reported.
It had nothing to do with disturbing court proceedings. The judge was looking for an excuse, ANY excuse, to extort her husband into paying money. The judge should go to jail.

You can see their blue screens in the dark theatre and it interupts the movie experience.

This guy is a jerk.

I agree.

Far after the 'incident', which the judge wasn't even aware of, he summons a mother of 4 young kids to his courtroom and immediately sentences her to a month in jail...for texting! This is judicial tyranny.

If anyone bothers to read the full story, this same judge gave a female teacher that had sex with a 16-year-old student - numerous times - probation.

This judge needs to be thoroughly investigated by his superiors and/or the people who put him on the bench. This is an outrage. You can rant about cell phones and texting all day long but this was a ridiculously minor infraction of whatever the courtroom decorum rules may have been in force at the time. 30 days for texting? After the fact? For a young mother of four?

Unless there is something we're not being told, which is always possible, this is an unacceptable abuse of power by a judge with no sense of proportion. The offer to release the woman on bail if her husband paid a $70,000. settlement is also highly suspicious and gives the appearance of judicial blackmail on the behalf of a plaintiff. Not good.
