Judge sanctioned for attempting to force lawyer to recite pledge of allegiance
Back in October, I reported that a judge in Mississippi held a lawyer in contempt when the lawyer refused to recite the pledge of allegiance in court. See here. The judge apprentely had the practice of requiring everyone to stand and recite the pledge when the judge entered the courtroom. The Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance was not impressed by the judge's conduct and it has now recommended a reprimand for the judge. Go here for the full story.
