Buck beef is settled, case dismissed

Charlottesville lawyer Frank Buck has been cleared of an assault charge for throttling his client in a courtroom.

A judge Thursday approved an accord-and-satisfaction proposal, dismissing the charge. Buck paid $81 in court costs, reports The Hook, a Charlottesville weekly.

According to accounts, Buck and his client were in Juvenile & Domestic Relations court Nov. 10 – talking during a recess – when the client began using abusive language. Buck responded by grabbing the client around the neck. Both men were charged.

Buck told the paper he has received a mandate from his law partners: “Get rid of clients who are more trouble than they’re worth.”
