Don’t punch your lawyer!

Things not to do: Punch your lawyer in court.  Really, you shouldn’t punch anybody in court.  But I can’t stress this enough, don’t punch your own lawyer!  Check out the video on the ABA Journal website, the guy just cold cocks the poor attorney.  He wasn’t even the guy’s attorney of record, he was just covering the hearing for another attorney.  Let that be a lesson to us lawyers, never cover for other people: you don’t know how crazy their clients are!  The guy earned himself a bonus 6 months in jail for contempt.

Interestingly, wcnc.com is also covering the cop killer who was just arrested here, in Fort Myers, as his crime occurred up there in ’96.  Small world.
