"Your Mother..."

The Louisiana Attorney Discipline Board has just updated its web page, which explains the number of bar discipline cases we have posted today from that jurisdiction. Here is a hearing committee report involving opposing counsel who were prosecuted together as a result of contempt citations. During a proceeding in open court, one lawyer called the other a "jackass." Opposing counsel responded  "Your mother is a jackass." There followed what is characterized as a "short altercation." Both were sentenced to a short term of imprisonment. The one who was found to have initiated the altercation got a 30 day suspended suspension; the other got a public reprimand. (Mike Frisch)
