A Hungarian lawyer may be investigated for asking whether a judge was Jewish. A Hungarian official called upon the Budapest Chambers of Lawyers to investigate Laszlo Grespik, who made the inquiry recently while representing a skinhead charged with inciting hate. In a related development, a bullet was fired last week through the window of a judge who acquitted a reverend of hate charges for calling to exclude Jews from Hungary’s public life.
