Clipping documents in court is not something that most people consider, but it’s a serious offense. Clipping documents in court can result in fines, jail time, and even disbarment for lawyers. I’ve always been a rule follower, so the thought of committing such a flagrant violation in court makes my palms sweat.
Sure, I’ve been known to clip coupons to save a buck or two, but when it comes to the courtroom, I’ll leave the clippers at home. On the other hand, I can’t help but wonder what kind of person does this during a court proceeding. One thing’s for sure; they’re definitely not getting a gold star.
