Court wakes up and smells the coffee after jury mix-up!
written by courtside reporter April 29, 2017
A bizarre mix-up during the impanelling of a jury in Letterkenny certainly had legal staff smelling the coffee.
The incident happened as a jury of 12 people was being sworn in for a trial at Letterkenny Circuit Court.
Just moments before the trial was due to begin, Counsel for the State, Ms Patricia McLaughlin, told Judge Terence O’Sullivan that a potentially serious issue had arisen.
It transpired that one of the 12 jurors chosen had written down the word ‘barrister’ as her profession on the jury enrollment sheet.
Ms McLaughlin said she considered the woman may be unsuitable and in fact, may not be allowed by law to serve on the jury.
Judge O’Sullivan agreed, saying it may be the case that the woman may not be a practising barrister.
The woman was called out from the jury room and Judge O’Sullivan asked the woman if she was a barrister.
The woman looked momentarily puzzled and replied “I am a barista.”
I don't believe sonic moles exist anywhere.
Now that's what I call a Class A acquisition. Hobart was recently bought to my attention via a catchy little tune playing between videos on YouTube.http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-21/dark-mofo-nude-solstice-swim-towel-shortage-tasmania/8637118
Some local news from Tassie. I had to come down to Hobart for a few days to take an exam so this morning I went to check out the famous Dark Mofo solstice swim. Merely as a spectator of course...not a participant! I did, however, find a cool memento that someone left behind!

Oh, and I almost got interviewed by an ABC reporter who thought I'd been in the swim.
Seems people suspect drunken youths, but I can't imagine a group of kids leaving a party with heavy-duty drilling equipment, set off into the wilderness, and cut this formation down with as neat precision as possible. I'd rather guess it might be an anti-tourist precaution or something. I'll tell you if something more comes up.Why would anyone do that?
