110 Criminal LawIt was not unusual for jury to be bored with defendant’s counsel’s arguments during summation that they had heard from codefendant’s counsel several times previously, and thus juror boredom with such arguments of defendant’s counsel was not grounds for new trial.
Com. v. Graves, 463 A.2d 467 (1983)
