Judge Holds Himself in Contempt Because of Cellphone
A Michigan judge held himself in contempt of court after his phone repeatedly kept going off while he was presiding over a case.
The Sentinel-Standard reported that Judge Raymond Voet’s phone kept demanding he give it a command during a trial last Friday.
The judge later explained that the phone was new and he didn’t quite have a hang on it yet. Even so, he held himself in contempt of court, and fined himself for the infraction stating, “If I cannot live by the rules that I enforce, then I have no business enforcing these rules.”
