Back to the case of the puzzled jury we asked you about in today's Geo Quiz.
A high profile drug trial has come to an abrupt end in Australia. It involved two men, the defendants, who were facing possible life sentences in connection with a major conspiracy to manufacture illegal drugs. The illicit activities took place in New South Wales, the answer to our Geo Quiz.
Click the arrow above to listen to our interview with one of the lawyers for the defense. According to Phil Stewart, a criminal defense specialist with the law firm Nyman Gibson Stewart representing the co-accused, the drugs trial had to be abandoned after several jurors - including the jury forewoman - admitted they had spent much of their time playing Sudoku.
The judge stopped the proceedings after the jury forewoman admitted she and four others had been playing the puzzles to fight off boredom. The problem was discovered when some of the jurors were observed writing notes vertically rather than horizontally. The two accused men faced possible life sentences.
