Lawyer faces criminal charges after showing up drunk to court

I have written before on cases involving attorneys showing up drunk to court (see here, here and here, for example).  Today the ABA Journal is reporting on a new case in which "a California lawyer has been criminally charged after allegedly appearing at court to represent clients at hearings in a drunken state."   According to the Visalia Times, the lawyer had twice the legal limit of alcohol in her system when she was given a breath-alcohol test as she entered the courthouse.  For more on this case go here, here and here.

  1. Court is the place where truth and regulation are necessary. Come to court on the position of drunk wine and other drugs are not allowed. If somebody do as same as that than he will be charged on legal harassment.
