  •  Been late to court myself. And I'm a lawyer. (4+ / 0-)

    Sometimes I have to argue for clients before US Magistrate Judges in Atlanta. Usually the security line takes 5-10 minutes, but at random times it's longer. Fortunately I have a smartphone and can find the judge's phone number on the court website, call his or her office, and tell them I'm stuck in the security line and will be there as soon as I can get through it.

    So far they've been very understanding.

    But then again I'm a nicely dressed, educated white guy in a suit, not a poor single mom of color.
