Throughout the trial, the jurors showed a remarkable solidarity. On Valentine’s Day, most of them wore red; during Mardi Gras they came to court donning colorful beads.
Also of note: Court Spirit day, and the bi-weeklyÂ ”pyjama-jammy-jam” Thursdays.

The jury was provided by cartoonist Bill Plympton, who couldn’t help but have a little bit of fun during some of the more tedious testimony by having the guy in yellow’s faceÂ morph into a revenous hamburger that began eating itself.
