13. Number 2 makes me wonder if he's one of those judges that doesn't allow note taking

It would explain his answer, too. Judges who ban it think jurors should rely on their memory because taking notes is distracting, and they think it makes jurors note some evidence with more importance than it deserves. It's ridiculous because many modern court cases are so complex with massive amounts of detailed evidence. Making jurors attempt to commit all of that to memory doesn't serve justice.
