YOU MAKE THE CALL!

The transcript featuring the pumping issue before Barbara McCarthy is in.  Read it here.  The issue: should a lawyer have had to absent herself from an ongoing trial to pump, or should the judge have allowed a break in the proceedings?

From an email to Jack Tuter this morning, arguing our position that breaks should have been given:

The fact remains that a young and dedicated attorney, whether lead counsel or not, should not have to make a choice between absenting herself from a trial where a man is facing a fifteen year maximum sentence or attending to her maternal obligations.  I can tell you this matter has engendered a very angry response from those familiar with the situation long before I posted it, and the fact that a young lawyer may have acquiesced to the wishes and authority of an exacting judge does not, in my opinion, make it a positive for the judiciary.  Having a second pair of trained eyes and ears in a fast moving and stressful trial setting is invaluable, and could make all the difference in the end, without even discussing the added stress and burden possibly placed on the lawyer’s performance who had to run about during the trial to express …

AGREE OR DISAGREE – YOU MAKE THE CALL!

    Think this pumping business is absolutely ridiculous. Pump on your own time. Like one less bimbo makes a real difference in the outcome of a trial. Think McCarthy was correct. Next thing you know this bimbo will want a recess to file her nails. Get real. These prima donnas need a wake up call. Start by pumping some brains into her head.

    Maybe back in the day Dan the Man Futch made Judge pump in the hallway so she thinks she’s being nice offering an “extremely short break” so the newbie could at least do one side real quick and be back and ready for cross.

    It’s worse than I had imagined. Thanks for posting. This wasn’t a discussion. It was an order couched in window dressing.

      Plug her into a vacuum cleaner or send in another newby to stand in for her. Really stupid request by a really green lawyer.

      More than half of the judges in Broward work less than half a day three days a week. Why would they needs anymore breaks? Empty Courtrooms remain most days. Who are they kidding.
      This place is a joke. Now this debate over pumping breaks.?
      These chicks need to have their heads examined.

    I don’t understand. Was she breastfeeding an infant, or pumping her milk to store it? Several females in our office have signs on their office door during lunch reminding people not to disturb them because they are pumping breast milk. It always makes someone laugh when they see a sign on a door that reads “Pumping. Pease do not disturb.” Couldnt this attorney just work with the court to coordinate her pumping during normally scheduled breaks?

    Stay home mommy…
    And stop being a perversion of nature in the workplace.
    Have baby ? Raise it. Don’t make the world pay for your mistakes and poor judgements.

    Are these comments a joke? What a bunch of Neanderthals. For those who don’t know, a working mom needs to pump during the day in order to maintain a supply of breastmilk and also so the baby has milk to drink the next day! And if a woman doesn’t pump, she will often leak all over the place. I imagine this atty asked for 2 or 3 breaks at the most which would be about 25 minutes each.

    What’s next ? Maybe we should install pumping booths outside the courtrooms for these baby mommas. Only in Broward would this nonsense be worthy of comment.
    Drunk judges, drugged judges, pay to play judicial corruption, arrogant screaming banshees, lazy slacker judges, political hacks, incompetent administration, judicial resignations, empty courtrooms: far greater concerns face the 17th Judicial Circuit than some leaky newbie bimbo looking for a pumping break.
    Try staying home and bonding with your child instead of wasting the Court’s time with your whining attention seeking drivel.

    Pumping bimbos should know better. This is a Court of Law, not some nursery school. The maturity factor of this bimbo should be the question, not The Court’s lack of acquiescence to her stupid request.
    Somebody should inform this bimbo that during a trial there is no time permitted to recess for milking mommies.
    Do your milking at home and bring a lunchbox.
