Well, that escalated quickly.... Veteran public defender Andrew Weinstock and Judge John Murphy came to blows after a heated exchange in a Florida courtroom. The incident stemmed from the Judge pressuring Weinstock's client to waive his right to trail. A short war of words gave way to a fist fight between the two men in a courtroom hallway. Judge Murphy allegedly punched Weinstock in the head before deputies were able to break up the altercation. The incident has been reported to the Florida Bar and Weinstock has been reassigned to another area to avoid feature run-ins with Judge Murphy.
