A Virginia Beach, Va., judge said defense lawyers have been asked to halt the practice of patting police officers on the back.
Chief General District Judge Gene Woolard said that while there has been no evidence of impropriety, the back-patting can leave the impression of a "good old boy system" that the court would rather do without, the Newport News (Va.) Daily Press reported Tuesday.
A report in a recent newsletter of the Virginia Beach Bar Association said some judges worry the gesture could appear prejudicial.

The Inspector recommends "high fives" instead.
