The Australian High Court tossed out two convictions because......
The court heard that the judge slept for up to 20 minutes at a time and sometimes snored, distracting the jury.
He did have an excuse.
Judge Ian Dodd has since been diagnosed with a condition known as sleep apnoea.
However, I have to agree with this statement.
"Where the judge is noticeably and repeatedly asleep or inattentive during the trial, there can be a miscarriage of justice," said Chief Justice Robert French.
