you know...this woman is an idiot...most of us know that this behavior is not allowed in court...but, i have to wonder why we have to respect judges?  I had to escort a client to court several times and always found myself very iritated that i had to 'rise' when the judge entered.  really?  i don't have to rise when a lawyer enters...or a police officer...and their job is proabbly much harder then a judge's job...

I showed up to court once for a :pimp: summons.  It is summer time and I show up in Sandals and shorts.  Cop at the security entrance asks me "what are you going to the beach today?  Go home and change and show up for court in apprpriate clothing."

 

Long story short, I come back and they dismissed the charge,

'much harder then a judge'  i would think a cop's job has more risk and potential difficulties then a judges job.

i understand that a judge could put a person in jail for contempt, or that they have a say in sentencing them for a crime...but what about when i go to court to monitor the trial of someone else...i still have to stand up and pay my respects to someone because why?  they went to law school?  we don't stand for the lawyers, or the overworked public defenders.  i once went to court(with a client) and the judge was almost two hours late, and i still had to stand up and pay respect for her entrance...if i'm two hours late i get written up...

 

and even when we look at the sentenceing of someone who committed a crime.  shouldn't their sentence be based on the crime they committed not how rude they are.  there are few places in the world where rudeness is a crime...

That was some great viewing!

 

Hey us blues: I don't see it as paying respect as much as just having a recognition that this is a guy who has near unlimited power over me, so I better behave well.  I guess that's a form of respect.

 

Cops, not so much, but I got screwed over for that once. . . in MA when you protest a speeding ticket, you have an opportunity to question the officer. I questioned him on the conditions that day and what other traffic was around at the time to prove that he had absolutely no memory of the event, which he didn't. The judge admonished me for being disrespectful to a state trooper and upheld the entire fine.

Respect of that which the judge represents inside the courtroom, not the judge as a person.

He probably went a little over the top with her there but the bottom line is it's best not to fuck with the guy who can lock you up.
