Ellis was sitting on a robbery trial in Queens last year and posted Facebook updates with details about the trial, despite the judge’s orders not to. “Everything about this process is inefficient,” she wrote on September 17. “I’m trying to remain positive and centered, but, truthfully, I’m dying from boredom.”
