You can have my laptop when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Like Daniel Solove, I was puzzled why the AP thought one law professor banning laptops in her class was newsworthy. Janet Halley's been doing that for years at HLS, although the policy is announced in the course description so laptop-dependent students can beware. Since this is a 1L class, the students probably had no choice about being in Entman's section, which seems unfair.

Warning to professors: if your class is boring, students will avoid eye contact by doodling.
