judgecorp writes: "Paul Chambers, the Briton whose joke on Twitter backfired, will be back in court following a legal stalemate, after more than two years. Chambers joked about blowing up South Yorkshire's Robin Hood airport, in January 2010, and was arrested and fined for "“sending a public electronic message that was grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character”. His resultant criminal record lost him his job as an accountant. Now his appeal has been heard, but the two judges disagreed with each other so Chambers will be back in court again."
