From the Associated Press Staci Zaretsky at Above the Law:1

An immigration judge in Atlanta denied an attorney’s request to delay a hearing that fell during her six-week maternity leave and then scolded her in front of a packed courtroom when she showed up with her 4-week-old strapped to her chest and the infant began to cry, the attorney said.

Well played, mom.


  1. Staci actually broke this story, and the AP apparently reported it without giving her credit. Lame.
