    It would be difficult to get a bomb inside the court house unless you worked there and could enter a side or back door you could not enter the main doors with a bomb.

    Probably a lawyer wanting to sleep in on this "crummy weather" day.

    I guess someone wasn't quite ready to go to jail. When they catch them they'll have even more time to think about it behind bars due to this brilliant stunt.

    Yes, you DO have to appear in court. Sorry, your ploy didn't work.
