Lawless Lawyers

Lawyers are known to be money-thirsty (charge you by the hour, finder’s fee, etc), but then you always imagined lawyers to be law-abiding and upright citizens, with high values and moral compunctions. Well, you thought wrong. In Chennai, one of the largest and most the technically advanced city in India, where many of the outsourcing jobs are located, was witness to hitherto unheard of mob scene. A lawyer unhappy with a judge’s decision to refuse bail for his client, apparently barged into the Magistrate’s chambers demanding bail for his client. In the following heated exchange, the judge was beaten up by a group of 20 lawyers for his refusal to issue a bail. Talk about lawyers who take law into their own hands.
