KANSAS CITY, Mo.
A Missouri judge is waiting for the legislature to act before he decides whether to hold a nursing mother in contempt of court for bringing her infant son for jury duty.
Roldan also decided to refund a $500 fine he assessed against a different nursing mother on Wednesday. He says he will re-impose that fine next year and call Trickle back into court on her contempt issue if the legislature doesn't act.
