This case provides a sobering and important reminder, with the moral of its story being that the best Court room etiquette is to sit quietly, respectfully and to listen. No chortling, guffaws or intentionally timed coughs in response to what you hear. 

As the Judge said in this case, the Claimant, who he described in his judgment as "manipulative" had "a tendency to look intently towards me with a knowing, sarcastic smile, as though to say it was perfectly obvious that everything that was being said by the Defendants’ witnesses was untruthful". "She went too far with this and thereby undermined her own evidence". 

Judges famously have the best seat in the house. Therefore, just because you have finished giving your evidence, does not mean your time is the spotlight is over.
