That's certainly the effect it had on Michelle Chauncey, who fumed, "I'm supposed to be depending on this courthouse for justice?"

* This version of events is pieced together through the testimonies of the Foytlin, Chauncey, Arnesen, and Breault, of two people who remained in the courtroom after the removal, and from my own observation -- I heard audio of the exchange streaming from the overflow room next to the courtroom, and came into the hallway in time to see Foytlin being pulled from the room and handcuffed. When I took a photo on my cell phone of Foytlin being handcuffed, one of the marshals or court guards grabbed my phone and told me I had to leave too. I got the phone back on the condition I erase the photo. I then rode down in the elevator with Foytlin and the enforcement officers and was ejected with her.
