The courtroom equivalent of "the dog ate my homework. Five times."
An interesting court transcript, from the Friesen prosecution. The prosecutor is trying to dodge and weave on why certain important documents were not disclosed to the defense, despite a court order, and neither the judge nor the defense attorney is giving him an inch of slack. "I'll go dismiss the jury for [sic--after] wasting their day. If I could sanction the government I would, but it would just be money out of the government's pocket for paying the government, but I don't want this to happen again." (No idea why he didn't sanction the individuals responsible, perhaps he just wanted to get the threat on the record in case he had to do it later).
