Politicians and stars are not the only one who can get in trouble for posting comments online.
Judge Thomas Indrebo was let go
after making a comment on an online news site that said Breivik should face the death penalty.
The judge was removed on request of both the defense and prosecution.
The trial was suspended
for 30 minutes to give time to chief judge, Wenche Elizabeth Arntzen, to study the matter.
Breivik, who has been declared fit to stand trial, maintains he was acting in self-defense or "by necessity" according to a new translation
by court officials when he killed 77 people in 2011.
He stands accused of voluntary homicides and acts of terror for the rampage he has himself qualified as "spectacular," before saying
he would do it again.
The death penalty does not exist in Norway.
