Judge reprimanded for trying to force lawyer to recite the pledge of allegiance
Back in December I reported a story (here) about a judge who sent a lawyer to jail for contempt when a lawyer refused to recite the pledge of allegiance in open court after being ordered to do so by the judge. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Mississippi Supreme Court has voted unanimously to discipline the judge. The court concluded the judge abused his power. Go here for the full story.
