Cell Phones in the Classroom/Courtroom

How many student cellphones have gone off in your classes?  What do you do about it?  Ignore it?  Embarrass the student?  When it happens, I think it's a real teaching moment.  RR and I have taken to assigning the offending student a memo about the sanctions judges have imposed on lawyers whose cellphones have gone off in court.  We may have to change our tactic because of this tidbit from NPR about a judge who went a bit too far in response to a cell phone ringing in court.--Counseller
