This attorney thought he was being smooth by live-streaming a trial on Facebook without asking the judge for permission.
The attorney thought he was going to get out of by apologizing but he ran into the wrong judge at the wrong moment.
Two television news cameras were live streaming the ridiculous trial of a man cited for warming up his car in the driveway of his Michigan home during subfreezing temperatures when the judge turned to the defense and asked if they were live streaming.
Attorney Nicholas Somberg acknowledged that his associate sitting behind him was live streaming, but had only done so after asking the local media if it was permissible. But Roseville District Judge Marco Santia was infuriated that Somberg did not fill out a permission slip approved by him and ruled him in contempt of court.
What did you think about this judge placing the attorney in contempt?
