No surprise here. Perhaps one in ten ARAs has any class at all and likely fewer any sense of courtroom decorum.

This Judge is a JOKE ! What kind of Judaical Review Panels do you have in Washington County... or is it still "who ya know" or "who your daddy was"... He should go back to Law School and learn something, altho it's probably hard to teach this guy anything !

Just Interested ----- Seriously? Is your post serious, or is it put up here for a joke? You need more education if what you put up is real! Any judge has a right to remove anyone or anything that he feels is an attempt to make a mockery out of the justice system (court room). The court room is not a sporting event & is not intended for entertainment purposes. Just Interested, I believe that your shortcoming in life are more than just who you did not know along the way. No, I am not on the side of the abuser (don't even know the person). I am just amazed at what matters to some people & the lack of common sense. The slayed animal will get its justice.
