One Lawyer Wanted by Two Judges

Rothwax is angry.

Neufeld is a wanted man.

No delays allowed.

11/28/94

New York Judge Harold Rothwax feuds with Judge Lance Ito in Los Angeles over one of Simpson’s many defense attorneys, Peter Neufeld, who has a case before Rothwax and is due in both judges’ courts on the same day. Thus ensued a cross-country judicial tug-of-war. It was only well after this event that it occurred to me that the judges might have been in cahoots with each other to teach a lesson to an over-confident and overly arrogant lawyer who had knowingly double-booked himself at trials on opposite coasts.
