And the Truth Shall Get You Removed

AP reports from Norway:

A citizen judge in the trial of confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik was dismissed Tuesday for saying online that the anti-Muslim extremist deserves the death penalty for killing 77 people in a bomb-and-shooting massacre.

Lawyers on all sides requested that lay judge Thomas Indreboe be dismissed for his comments online the day after the July 22 attacks.

It's not clear from the story whether he was removed for prejudging the case or for favoring the death penalty.  The former would be valid.
