I'm going to go against the grain. Since Florida has failed me three times in a row, I'll go Germany.

3-14! 8-o

Dang. This one just sounds like Florida to me. It all had a very American ring to it for some reason. :-?

I was surprised to see it so lopsided when I hit submit though. 8-o

Maybe it's just me, but I tend to think that most odd court cases point towards Germany. I figured this would be a bit more challenging than it was because of that, but apparently I was wrong. :-D

So, as the majority has so obviously discerned, this happened in... FLORIDA!!!



Here's the original story:

Judge jails slow stenographer
A judge in Florida jailed his own court stenographer for working too slowly.

Circuit Judge Charles Greene sent Ann Margaret Smith to prison for contempt of court in Fort Lauderdale.

She had failed to finish typing a transcript needed for an appeal hearing for a convicted rapist, reports Metro.

Judge Greene said Smith had failed to finish the transcript for several months and had missed her final deadline of last Friday.

She also failed to write up the transcript in time for her appearance on contempt of court charges.

Smith was released from jail on Sunday night, after she said she couldn't do the work in prison because she was so worried about her three children at home.

Judge Greene relented, and allowed her out of jail - but immediately put her under house arrest until she completes the work.
