You usually do not see sitting judges doing a lot of press. Part of the job is the appearance of being above the fray. So this interview the Baltimore Sun did with newly sworn Baltimore County Circuit Court Judge John Nagle is kind of a rare opportunity to see a judge speak publicly about how they feel about the responsibility of the position and the way they intend to run a courtroom.
Judge Nagle is clear that he disapproves of attorneys who appear flip or glib. I am now making a mental note to tone it down when appearing before Judge Nagle.
