Overturning Verdict, Judge Slams Lawyer

Lawyer’s ‘Bombast’ Gets Verdict Tossed, ABA Journal Daily News, Oct. 11, 2007.

The judge exercised his impressive vocabulary, saying the lawyer made "mordaciously sarcastic" comments. "Such disrespectful cockalorum, grandstanding, bombast, bullying and hyperbole as Mr. Brennan exhibited throughout the trial are quite beyond my experience as a jurist."

The lawyer, for his part, says that the judge insulted the jury by overturning its verdict.
