The mother reported being humiliated by the judge, where the following dialogue reportedly happened in court:
And Judge Baratta had no qualms repeating that opinion to the press:
For Sherry Ane Moore, the only thing that matters is - not the state law allowing the mother to do what she did, but that she had her "tit hanging out while addressing a judge". And that was, to Sherry Ane Moore, "unacceptable".
Here is Sherry Ane Moore's Facebook profile:
Nevada attorney and officer of the court Sherry Ane Moore thinks that it was the breastfeeding mother, who followed the state law by breastfeeding her baby when and where the baby wanted to be fed, who was nevertheless wrong, not the judge who humiliated the mother in open court for following the law and taking care of her baby.
Sherry Ane Moore works in a Las Vegas law firm Zieve, Brodnax & Steele, LLP and boasts of having graduated from the University of Nevada with a Criminal Justice degree "magna cum laude" - with top grades.
Yet, this young female lawyer thinks more about how to please the judge rather than whether the judge violated the law in this context - and he did, clearly, so the question whether what the judge did was "appropriate" or "inappropriate", asked of lawyers, was a trick question - the judge clearly violated the law, what can be appropriate about it?
I do not believe that a woman "could have handled it better" - she followed the law, and that is the beginning and the end of the issue, but I do agree that a judge may not put himself above the law.
That was, by the way, the name of the blog on which the three female attorneys explained that when judge violates the law, the litigant has to comply with it.
With all the J.D. degrees, passed bar examinations and prestigious jobs in law firms, these attorneys did not get through their heads the main thing that schoolchildren in this country are taught -
NOBODY IS OR SHOULD BE ABOVE OR BELOW THE LAW.
