An attorney was censured and fined $100 by the District Court Division of the General Court of Justice (North Carolina) for "unprofessional behavior."
When asked in chambers whether she had complied with her obligation to "yield gracefully to the court's order," she stated:
I don't feel procedures and statutes have been followed and I'm just being honest with you.
After the question was repeated, she was unresponsive and then said:
I just don't agree.
Then, while waiting in court for the judge to complete the contempt paperwork in his chambers, she became impatient and said:
This is bullshit.
After a lieutenant told her to keep quiet, there was this:
This shit doesn't happen in Raleigh.
Told again to be quiet, the reply:
The court is not in session.
The attorney waved the $100 during the above exchanges.
