Luckily, I do not frequent the courthouse, however, this is very upsetting to me. I've been called for jury duty before and thank goodness I had my cell phone to help get me through the boredom. What about if I brought my Nook? Is that banned too? The world has changed. You're allowed to bring books, but in this day and age, all of my books are electronic. Furthermore, there is nothing I can think of that I would do with my phone/electronic device that would bother or impede on anyone and I'm sick of being treated like I'm irresponsible. Don't put me in that class. If there is someone causing a problem at the courthouse, kick them out!
