Courtroom sudoku: People are pathetic series!

Ha ha ha ha ha.

$1 million Australia drug trial aborted after more than half of jurors caught playing sudoku

[The forewoman] said four or five jurors had brought in the Sudoku sheets and photocopied them to play during the trial and then compare their results during meal breaks. She admitted to having spent more than half of her time in court playing the game. The trial, which started on March 4, has cost more than $1 million, including counsels' fees, staff wages and court running costs for 60 days of hearings. Judge Zahra, who had previously commended the jury for its apparent diligence, told the forewoman that the Sudoku players had let down their fellow jurors and all involved in the trial.

Good to know that "the players" didn't face any harsh consequences. Can you blame "the players", though?
