Jurors Playing Sudoku

This news might be somewhat related to the post below on laptops in classrooms . . .

A judge in Australia aborted a drug conspiracy trial this week after some of the jurors were found to be playing the puzzle game Sudoku while lawyers were presenting evidence. The complex trial had been running for 66 days and cost about a million dollars.  Click here for more.

Is there something about the law that makes it hard for jurors -- and law students -- to pay attention?
