Reader and philosopher Patrick O'Donnell forwarded us this headline and link from his local paper, the Los Angeles Times: Judge orders chronically late lawyer jailed in Compton. And here is the story as seen in the online ABA Journal: "A criminal defense lawyer with a history of tardiness and missing court dates was tossed in jail on Monday when he showed up 35 minutes late for court wearing a rumpled suit and no tie." Convenient, since you aren't allowed a tie in jail. But jail for two days?
Thanks for the heads-up, Patrick (who I believe once said that he does not own a tie). [Alan Childress]
