    From the funnies: Michigan judge holds himself in contempt after his Windows Phone goes off in court

    by Ron on April 15, 2013 - 02:06PM


    Now this is pretty funny. A Michigan judge recently made the switch from a BlackBerry device to a Windows Phone smartphone. Unfortunately for him, he had no idea how to turn off the device's sounds, especially during court. So what happens when the device goes off in the courtroom?

    "On Friday afternoon, during a prosecutor's closing argument as part of a jury trial, Voet's new smartphone began to emit sounds requesting phone voice commands. Voet said he thinks he bumped the phone, and the embarrassment likely left his face red," the Associated Press reports (via Neowin).

    Judge Raymond Voet held himself in contempt of court and fined himself $25 for the infraction. "I'm guessing I bumped it. It started talking really loud, saying 'I can't understand you. Say something like Mom,'" Voet stated

    Voet recently made the switch from a BlackBerry device to a Windows Phone and excepted no excuses when it comes to phones in the courtroom. "That's an excuse, but I don't take those excuses from anyone else. I set the bar high, because cellphones are a distraction and there is very serious business going on. The courtroom is a special place in the community, and it needs more respect than that," Voet added.

    Voet added that he was not above the rules, so he fined himself. Voet deserves an "atta boy" from us as well the recommendation to set the Voice Command playback to "earpiece" and not "speakerphone."

    Publicity stunt. He could have left the phone in his office.
