The web page of the Florida Bar reports that an attorney was recently subject to a public reprimand. The misconduct and additional sanction was summarized as follows:
[The attorney] is further ordered to attend The Florida Bar's anger management workshop...[the attorney] plead guilty to charges that she referred to a witness in a court hearing as a "liar." When questioned about it by the presiding judge, [the attorney] denied making the comment. [The attorney] later admitted to it.
Was the judge not paying attention? (Mike Frisch)
