Order in The Court
Syracuse Law Review
Today, with growing alarm we witness a continual escalation in incivility culminating all too frequently in violence. It is high time that "Order in the Court" includes good manners, disciplined behavior, and respect for the system. It is these ingredients that are at the core of maintaining and preserving our democratic system. Perhaps it is time to supplement the code of professional responsibility with a code of personal behavior to insure civility in courts.
Leonard Pertnoy, Order in the Court, 43 Syracuse L. REV. 1159 (1992).
