Judge Jackie Glass, wearing jeans and a blue polo shirt, gave a brief tour of her courtroom Friday morning to two adults and three young children.
The judge showed the two nine-year-old cub scouts and a seven-year-old girl her gavel and bench.
Glass joked about what she tells lawyers from her chair.
"They yell objection," Glass explained. "Then you yell sustained. Now sit down.. Or no, no, no."
The cub scouts were visiting the court as part of a quest to get a citizenship patch.
Glass has kept a lid on the high-powered attorneys in the trial, often reprimanding them for their behavior.
The jury in the 0.J. Simpson robbery trial has begun deliberating on the fifteenth floor of the Clark County Regional Justice Center.
The panel of nine women and three men includes one Latina. None of the jurors are African-American.
