Jennifer Hudson's judge has had enough with technology.
Judge Charles Burns has banned the use of cell phones during the family murder trial of William Balfour.
While reporters were originally allowed to text and tweet updates on the proceedings, the judge had to shut it down after too many interruptions and violations, namely too many phones ringing during the hearing.
Really?! How hard is it to put a phone on silent?!?!?!
Though Tweets did not cause any violations, Twitter has been banned from the court as well, along with email, after one journalist just wouldn't cut it out with the tap-tap-tapping on his mobile.
The phone ban takes place Thursday.
No more play by play, but we'll still be well informed as this trial continues.
