Hand Gestures

The Tennessee Board on Professional Responsibility has issued a public censure to an attorney for deposition misconduct.

According to a press release, the attorney

believed he saw the opposing side's expert witness making hand gestures and moving his head. [The attorney] became angry and was threatening to the opposing expert witness.

The public censure "is a rebuke and warning to the attorney, but it does not affect the attorney's ability to practice law." (Mike Frisch)
