Michigan Judges

George G Bates

Instantly Judge Woodbridge, with a fraternal generosity and true courtesy which marked the members of the bar at that time, took me by the hand and said : " Sit down here and help me try this case." That was over 40 years ago. There is no such fraternal feeling among the members of the bar at the present time. Now, when I meet lawyers in the street, they stick their hands in their pockets and rushby with a look, that plainly says, " Bates wants to borrow my money or my watch." Brother Baxter knows that in those days opposing counsel never laid up anything against each other for what happened in the trial of a cause, for they then knew that the first element of a good lawyer was to be an accomplished gentleman. Fraternal courtesy should also mark the demeanor of judges upon the bench.
