Judicial tears

Just watched the the video of the Florida Judge Larry Seidlin breaking down in tears as he gave judgment in the custody dispute over the late Anna-Nicole Smith's daughter. What next, you might ask? Perhaps the Lord Chief Justice breaking down in tears when he is forced to uphold one of the government's policies? Definitely Tony Blair when he is forced to hand over the reins to his next door neighbour. But maybe we might even start seeing County Court judges following suit in possession actions or personal injury cases.

Yes I have been watching the proceedings and was starting to get the felling I was watching old episodes of "Night Court"

It was so staged. Just ridiculous. Only in America!

As a former judge, I am embarrassed by the way this case has been handled. What should have been a fairly routine hearing turned into a TV spectacle. I wonder if the learned judge has inked a book deal yet? I enjoy the blog--keep up the good work.
