I learned late Thursday night from the "On the Record" team I work with in Redwood City (search) that I completely flipped them out two days ago and had no idea I had.
When juror No. 5 was dismissed, I e-mailed my producer from the courtroom with the simple message "5 booted!" I figured they wanted the news immediately as it happened. The team in our Redwood City "bureau" thought I meant that FIVE jurors were dismissed — and not one juror (No. 5) — and I set off a complete panic. There was total pandemonium as everyone jumped to deal with the catastrophic news about "five booted."
To hear everyone talk (tease me?) about the panic my e-mail set off in Redwood City is quite funny. No one will let me off the hook on this.
