Yeah, you don't want to do that to a judge...
Because of Covid regulations many courts are conducting their hearings via Zoom. And that seems to be making some people take the whole thing a little less seriously.
Case in point: Louisville lawyer Shanika O'Neill is now facing a contempt citation because she straight up hung up on a Zoom call with the judge because she was fed up with her client.
Watch how everyone reacts:
(Just for context, you can't see Ms. O'Neill in the video, but you hear her voice. Her client is bottom left and the judge is top left)
So, basically what happened was O'Neill wanted to get out of the misdemeanor case and asked the judge if they could withdraw. The judge says, "nope." And O'Neill goes on a little rant about how terrible her client is and indicates she doesn't care if her motion to withdraw is denied, she's done.
The last thing she says is, "I bet I don't appear again." Then she was OUTTA THERE.
Look at these reactions! 🤣
They can't believe that just happened!
The judge couldn't either. And now Ms. O'Neill is facing contempt of court.
Also, did I hear that right? Did that dude say "I don't have a mental illness. I'm from Florida"?? 🤔
