I really, REALLY love the concept of the game. I do think, however, that it should be faster-paced. The whole verdict cutscene thing might look cool, but it gets boring fast and should be used only to some specific cases ("boss" cases, maybe?), and with more sound effects (maybe voice acting).
In my head, something more like "papers please", where you go from one case to the other (maybe even with a big stamp "GUILTY" or "NOT GUILTY"), would feel better.
