30 Appeal and ErrorA vitriolic attack on trial court and legal profession, contained in appellant’s brief, complaining because court directed successful counsel to prepare finding and decree and adopted prepared finding and decree, and stating, among other things, that it would be easy for a smart lawyer to “slip a joker” into the decree when judge was weary and too tired to make his own decisions, and that legal profession needed some “fumigation not to mention deodorization,” was improper.
Baker v. Cutting, 280 N.W. 548 (Iowa 1938)
