“Kiss My Ass, Judge”

Continuing a theme we’ve discussed before, the South Carolina Court of Appeals upheld the contempt order for a woman who signed a court document with the words “Kiss my ass.”

Circuit Judge Diane Goodstein found Judith Law in contempt and ordered her to serve 90 extra days. Law challenged the ruling, saying the contemptuous behavior happened outside the judge’s view.”No matter where Law signed the revocation order, her conduct was in the presence of the judge,” the Appeals Court wrote in its decision last month.

As I wrote last time: it’s a bad idea to piss off the judge.
