Re. the Judge Bayly incident: When a judge tells you three or four times to stop talking and sit down, and you simply raise your voice and keep talking; when the judge warns that you're about to be held in contempt, and you show him your palm and say "I don't know what's going on up there" -- in those circumstances, you might reasonably expect to be stepped back. Would have been better if the judge had just ejected her from the courtroom, and I'm glad the commission insisted on a very high bar for stepping a lawyer back. But I have no sympathy for the lawyer, and I'm not so sure that stepping her back was grossly disproportionate. Disproportionate, maybe, but not grossly so.
