“Bailiff, give the defense attorney at good whack on the head.”

My guess is that they are tort plaintiff attorneys and criminal defense attorneys. (Complete photoset here). Moon doubts the photos will garner much sympathy in the U.S. where idiots like Mark Geragos and the crooks at Milberg Weiss have created an atmosphere of contempt for [...]
