And finally… bugged

A courthouse was forced to cancel proceedings after it turned out to be infested with bed bugs for a second time in three weeks.

Lawyers, jurors and court officials were asked to leave to allow exterminators to return to the building.

The bed bugs infested both courtrooms and a number of first-floor and second-floor offices in the Moss Justice Center in York County, South Carolina.

Hundreds of members of the public and more than 100 lawyers and clerical staff had visited the infested areas in the previous week, according to local newspaper The Herald.
