Johnson City judges vent on bad conduct in the courtroom

In this article from the Kingsport paper, various judges of the Washington County, TN, courts express their grievances about the appearance and decorum of the litigants (and counsel) who appear before them.

The article begins: "From women wearing swimsuits to their divorce hearings to well-dressed cranky attorneys, no one is above being reprimanded for improper attire, or attitude, in the courts of Washington County."

I once sat in a courtroom in Johnson City for about eight hours, and nothing bad happened to me.
