Federal Court judge chastises pollster Graves for using Twitter to eavesdrop on court proceedings after told to leave courtroom

Ekos Research pollster Frank Graves, a key witness for the eight voters who want the 2011 federal election results overturned in six ridings over alleged fraud, was chastised by Federal Court Judge Richard Mosley on Wednesday for using Twitter to eavesdrop on a lawyer’s comments about his own credibility in the case after the judge asked him to leave the courtroom so Mr. Graves would not hear what the lawyer had to say.
