Lawyer On Maternity Leave Told To Show Up In Court

Amber Vazquez Bode, a lawyer in Travis County Texas, was on maternity leave recovering from a C-section when she was called into court to by Justice of the Peace Glenn Bass. Bode had faxed in a continuance to delay the trial but it was denied.

She brought her baby with her who apparently was crying the whole time as would be expected of a new born in such a situation. The judge felt that Bode’s attitude was in contempt of court given her upset demeanor.

What would you do? If you were nursing a baby and were forced to go somewhere due to your job would you bring the baby or leave him with friends.
