Lawyer Suspended For Swearing At Trial.
A Chicago area lawyer was suspended for 90 days from practicing in the Northern District of Illinois after she was accused of using profanity in front of a jury. In an order issued by the federal court's executive committee, the attorney's conduct by rolling her eyes and using the "F" word prejudiced the administration of justice. In addition she was also barred from participating as lead attorney in any trial for a full year and ordered to take ethics and professionalism classes.
