A New York lawyer has lost his case days after getting escorted by security out of a federal appeals courtroom for making a “discourteous” comment to a judge during oral arguments.

The three-page summary order from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit made no reference to solo attorney Todd Bank’s comments Dec. 11, where he accused Judge Denny Chin of not reading the briefs closely after asking a question about injury, a common legal issue. The hearing ultimately ended with Judge Barrington Parker asking that Bank be removed from the courtroom.
