Fed Up Judge Puts Lawyers In Their Place

In an attempt to show two opposing lawyers how childish and petty they have become in an argument over where to take a witness statement (neither would agree to the others location), U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell ordered both of them to meet at a neutral location at 4 p.m. June 30 and play a round of rock, paper, scissors to determine which side would ultimately set the interview location. The Honorable Judge also went on to say that if both parties cannot agree on a neutral location, they'll play the court ordered tie breaker right on the steps of the courthouse. I guess that Joe Q. Public is not the only one sick and tired of hearing lawyers bicker endlessly. The old saying of "Whether you know it or not, your actions teach other people how to treat you" comes to mind.
