Fark it. If you have to go to jury duty you don't stop being yourself.

Didn't RTFA because advertising crockblock, but I gotta say that would spruce up my day as a member of the legal support staff.

But I ain't no judge either.

Attorney: "I put on my robe and wizard hat."

I hear old Harry caught the "golden snitch" and now advocates against unprotected Quiddich.

Well, it is the kind of title people used give out when the The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem was founded 150 years ago....

Something tells me that this sort of hostile attitude from the judge didn't happen in a vacuum.

Sounds like something out of a Pratchett/Gaiman novel.

Not sure what you're getting at.  Just pointing out that it's a thing that exists?  I think most of us 'round here probably knew that.

Name's still as absurd if not more so than making your name a symbol like Prince or something.

Judge David Wynn Morgan said Blacker's clothes were unbecoming for "south Wales,"

wow, that must be bad then

I see what you did there, and I approve.

Well he sounds completely sane.

Was anybody able to find a picture of this guy in the offending court regalia?  All TFA had was him in a nicely understated shirt-and-vest combo.

I found a picture of him with his hair sticking out of one of those goofy wigs.  S'about it.  No medals.

Welcome to the UK.

Anyway, it's not his name - it's his job title. More or less.

Any title with four uses of 'the' and five of 'of' probably falls under the 'more' part of 'more or less'

At least he took some effort to dress up for court.

Several years ago I went to court on a traffic ticket. Sitting waiting my turn the case before me the guy had a lawyer. I swear I think she had slept in her clothes and she had a very bad case of bed head. I was pretty shocked that a lawyer would appear in court in such a state.  At least wear clean clothes and comb your hair.

I was even dressed better than her and that's sad.

And as far as the name well I've heard weirder.
