Attorney Arrested for Arguing in Court

A California Deputy Attorney General was arrested a few weeks ago in a courtroom for carrying on an argument. Court was in recess, so it was not before the judge, but, um… how does this bailiff justify arresting the attorney? The attorney arrested, Jennie Kelly, has her own attorney now, who is alleging the Bailiff committed a battery. They may have a pretty good case.

The California Attorney General’s Office is a Law Enforcement agency- Ms. Kelly is a deputy of the chief law enforcement officer of the state, and she was acting in her official duty representing the state, though it was a civil matter. This may have been the worst attempt to pull rank in law enforcement history…

  2. The tape seems to show Ms. Kelly resisting the officer’s attempt to handcuff her, at about the 30 second mark. That’s a dumb move, even if the officer is in the wrong. Was she asked to leave? Was she asked to quiet down?

    And according to your link, she won the case!
