March 28, 2021

A woman’s case was recently thrown out of court because the attorney presiding over the case could not manage to breathe anymore through a mask.

The attorney who was hired to help the lady through the legal procedure was Attorney Howard Greenwald, who after some time in court declared that he was sweating hard from what he was doing in the mask, and wanted the records to reflect that.

The lawyer said he was not against the laws of the court where wearing a mask was concerned, however, he stated that he could no longer physically cooperate with the rules governing the job.

The judge that was leading the process is Lawrence Knipel, and it was reported that just last year he was a victim of the virus however, he is not using his personal experience as an excuse for the dismissal.
