A Goolsby "War Story:" Strange Things I Have Seen in Georgia Courtrooms!

[Photo from Wikipedia]
Sometimes, as a former state and federal prosecutor, (and presently, as an Augusta, Georgia criminal defense lawyer), I think I have "seen it all" in courtrooms around the State of Georgia!  Here is just a small sample:

1. I once tried a criminal case against a lawyer who wore a pea green leisure suit and gray hush puppies during the trial!

2. I once tried a criminal case in a Georgia courtroom which had brass spittoons strategically located around it!

3. I once tried a case against a lawyer who actually put those courtroom spittoons to good use during the trial!
What unusual things have you seen where you work?!
