Stolen (California) Bar Exam Update

Congrats to Norm

Co-blogger Norm Pattis just won an acquital in a case involving a lawyer who, during an argument with opposing counsel, allegedly shoved a police officer who stepped in between the two lawyers.  There was a video.

The lawyer was charged with four counts - felony assault, misdemeanor interfering with an officer and third-degree attempted assault, and misdemeanor breach of the peace.  The lawyer-defendant was acquitted on all but the breach of the peace count.  That's definately a victory. 

Congrats, Norm.  The Hartford Courant's coverage of the story is available here.
