I agree with that.
The number one cause of talking in court..... you can't hear anything
and get a little bored with it. A PA system would be great, but not
period. The second reason is courts that never end. I like the one
hour rule of our present king.

However, I am hearing impaired and it is hard enough to hear what is going on in court without the competition from the back row talkers. I'd like to see the talkers leave court, go find a nice corner somewhere and talk. But, if you are going to be in court, exercise enough chivalry and manners to let others hear even if you aren't interested.
