“Go Seahawks”

The DenverChannel, via lawblog:

bq. TACOMA, Wash. — A judge overseeing a manslaughter case embarrassed prosecutors and upset the victim’s family when she called for a Super Bowl cheer for the Seattle Seahawks before the start of the sentencing hearing.
As Judge Beverly G. Grant took the bench Friday, she asked everyone in court to say “Go Seahawks.” Dissatisfied with the low volume of the response, she told them to try again.

After this, she heard statements and sentenced the defendant to thirteen-and-a-half years’ imprisonment.
