    I've always been curious how much power judges have to hold people in contempt and have them jailed, as well as how many of the rules in a courtroom are actually rules and how many are traditions. Are judges like kings in their courtrooms, and should they be?

    Taken at face value, the events in the OP sound ridiculous. A judge taking his power over the conduct of those in his courtroom too far.

    I don't trust anyone who doesn't pledge allegiance to the flag. It's unAmerican, in my opinion.

    Odd, Beck told me not to trust anyone who recites pledges and oaths written by socialists

    In California, and I would assume other states as well, no judge can jail an attorney summarily for alleged contempt of court. Oh, he/she can try, and the attorney will be escorted from the courtroom to the lockup, but the attorney will not stay there for any significant amount of time. There is a legal procedure that can be invoked to get the attorney released pending further contempt proceedings. This is designed to protect attorneys from precisely what appears to have happened here - some despotic judge taking a little ego trip.

    Nobody cares if the lawyers are jailed. Most people probably think that's a good start!

    Nobody should. And people are supposed to trust him with their legal safety...

    I wish they would consider it treason.
