Making the Record with Anger Draws Discipline

The Legal Profession Blog brings us an example of disrespect for the court that is crystal clear, unlike the “french fry” comment that caught so many people’s attention at the end of May and again last month.  At the hearing on a continuance motion, a criminal defense lawyer, who had signed his papers “Indignantly submitted,” insisted that he would “jam these pleadings down the throat of the record as much as I feel I need to.”  Not the recommended approach, to say the least.  Check out the post at Legal Profession Blog for the consequences of this conduct.
