Re: Thrown out? Or she should be jailed?

"I believe that the average member of public would not be lenient on a Judge breaking the rules."

Sure, but she didn't break the rules because apparently there weren't any. She didn't "hack" anything she just opened some files that she clearly had access to. No training or guidance was given on appropriate use of the digital records system and an email advising not to use it this way was only sent out after she did it.
