Attorney Shell arrested after court clash
September 27, 2012, 5:00 pm by
Marble Falls defense attorney Eddie Shell has never been
known to shy from saying what is on his mind and Tuesday it cost him a contempt
of court arrest in Cottonwood Shores Municipal Court.
Undaunted, he told the judge he had been held in contempt
"by better judges than you.
Shell was arrested after being held in contempt by Judge Don
The attorney was in Adams court to request a continuance
for a client so according to
Shell he could attend the funeral of his grandfather in Kansas. Adams granted
the continuance but according to Shell, "The judge said, Im going to grant
this continuance, but I personally know your client is lying.
For more on the story, see Friday's Highlander.
So why don't they need documention of the funeral? Sounds like the defendant might be guilty of perjury.

First of all the judge should have the professionalism to not confront an officer of the court in the presence of the court.

Mr. Shell is absolutely right about the Judge having an all ready perceived opinion about Shells client.And to openly say it is really sttupid for a judge to do. Its also a MAJOR conflict of interest.. There is a definite problem with Muni Judges all over the country. They get hired by their cities to be revenue makers and don,t always know the real laws or ethics issues.. Go Mr, Shell,you sir are a patriot.
