@1: I should've put "LAME" in quotes. I would play this game as well; I also happen to be a total goody-goody who has an active interest in the judicial system. So, you know, there's that.

Speaking of GTA, this reminds me of the fake radio ad for the Sim-City-like Civil Service game.

p.s. the oregeon trail game was also rad.

A good place to start is to let kids digitally re-enact court cases… which sounds LAME

You've obviously never played Phoenix Wright. (Well, neither have I, to be fair.) But it could be a fun game if it had lots of "OBJECTION!" and "OVERRULED!" thrown in.

Add Harvey Birdman, Matlock, and Sam Waterston as playable characters and you're on to something.

@5: There's actually a Harvey Birdman game for the PS2 and Wii. It's supposed to be funny but simple. And I don't count Phoenix Wright as the same thing as what Sandra's doing here--that game's a cheesier Law & Order. Fun, but sensationalized.

Ironic that when she was sitting on the Supreme Court, she opposed having cameras there. That would have been more helpful for civic engagement with the Supreme Court. Count me as a skeptic on this upcoming title.
