I have seen this event on television courtroom dramas. The judge holds the lawyer responsible for the conduct of his client when he reacts badly to events in the chamber. In real life the lawyer can’t do anything about how the client reacts.
Judges not on television know this, but people also not on television don’t. So I have had an opposing client declare I should control my client when things went badly for her and she didn’t take it well.
We are out in the hall and my client is losing it.
“Mr. Patterson- Control your client!”
Like I am the courtroom bouncer? I am a counselor at law, not counselor generally.
I recall looking for the marshall instead.
