Irritating A Judge Is Never A Good Plan

by

Business Insider.com has posted an article about a truly strange idea a man had to help a judge “reconsider” his verdict.

Judge Robert Gettlemen had found Kevin Trudeau, an infomercial pitchman, in contempt of a court order, for $36.7 million, for using deceptive tactics to market a diet program.

Trudeau had the less than brilliant idea to supply his fans with the judge’s email address so they could put in a good word for Trudeau. Needless to say, Gettlemen was pretty annoyed and called an emergency hearing where Trudeau was arrested on charges of criminal contempt and held on $50,000 bail.

Trudeau has since asked his fans not to email the court anymore, which is definitley a good idea.
