Here are some new legal terms that are being used that you may or may not have heard of out there.
1. Benchslap – According to Urban dictionary
A benchslap is when a judge humiliates an attorney, insults another judge, or reverses a lower court in a particularly demeaning manner. A judicial bitch slap, if you will. This term was popularized by David Lat of AboveTheLaw.com
David, you seem to be on a roll. Although I didn’t see a definition for the last neologism “judicial diva” I’m sure we can all just use our imagination.
