Hanging Jury

Webcomic Storyline:

Comic Transcript: 

SAMSUNG LAWYER: Thanks to your help, the judge has decided to throw out all of the motions we were going to have to argue against today. He's giving the jury their final instructions as we speak.

ADALAI FOULE: I'm afraid I may have arrived too late to make a difference. Have you noticed the way those instructions are going?

JUROR (OFF-PANEL): But death would be pretty damaging.
