Defense attorneys said 51st District Judge Barbara Walther’s body language has appeared biased...

Defense attorney Jeff Kearney assembled more than a dozen witnesses who testified that Walther has rolled her eyes and used gestures that made her appear frustrated with the defense. In one instance, attorneys said, she leaned back in her chair and looked up at the ceiling — though she later apologized, saying she had a sinus headache.
“Many of the jurors would punch each other, nod their heads and smile to indicate they had seen” Walther’s gestures, said FLDS defense attorney Dan Hurley, the Standard-Times reported.

While I agree Judges should be completely impartial, and this kind of behavior is inexcusable, I doubt I could contain my contempt for some of the things they are probably saying.
