Art committed under color of law Playing with her 3 and 4 year old daughters one day, Jenny Davis found herself surrounded with Disney Princess, Dora the Explorer and Strawberry Shortcake coloring books, and got frustrated. “There’s not a lot to say to your kid about some of these coloring books,” she said. So Davis, assistant managing editor of the ABA Journal, set out to fix the problem. She created the U.S. Supreme Court Coloring and Activity Book, now on sale at the Supreme Court gift shop and online in several locations. It costs $5.95, has big faces and wide lines, with the occasional maze and puzzle, and is published by her magazine. Davis did all the drawings herself, including the current justices and a few historical ones, such as Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. and Thurgood Marshall. Davis said it’s been a good law firm gift for clients’ kids, and a California court library bought a bunch. “A lot of pro se litigants come in to the library with their kids, and this gives them something to do,” Davis said. � Legal Times Off the hook A judge who jailed 46 people who were in his courtroom when a cell phone call interrupted proceedings was removed from the bench by a state commission. Niagara Falls, N.Y., City Court Judge Robert Restaino “snapped” and “engaged in what can only be described as two hours of inexplicable madness” the state Commission on Judicial Conduct said. No one owned up when the phone rang during a domestic violence calendar, so Restaino ordered everyone into custody until later that afternoon. Restaino told the state panel he had been under stress in his personal life. � Associated Press
