Following Up On A Pledge Case

About two months ago I wrote about a judge in Mississippi who imprisoned an attorney for not reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.  As I predicted, the judge received a public reprimand and has acknowledged his error.  The attorney who was on the receiving end of the order claims to not hold a grudge and has made public statements of respect for the judge; if his private feelings are any different, he is keeping them to himself. This seems to me to be the right resolution.

The wheels of justice grind slow, but often enough they come to rest in the right position.
