A judge refused to delay a trial Tuesday when an attorney objected to his wearing a judicial robe with the Ten Commandments (search) embroidered on the front in gold.Where's the ACLU? This guy is being demagogued by the media for engaging in Free Speech.
Attorney Riley Powell, defending a client charged with DUI, filed a motion objecting to the robe and asking that the case be continued. He said McKathan denied both motions.How about you don't drink and drive? Then, you wouldn't have to be "distracted" by the Ten Commandments, well...that and prison time.
"I feel this creates a distraction that affects my client," Powell said.
