Vocabulary word of the day: cockalorum

Discovered at overlawyered.com, U.S. District Judge Robert Blackburn's opinion of Mark E. Brennan:
"In over 19 years on the bench, I have seen nothing comparable," the judge wrote. "Such disrespectful cockalorum, grandstanding, bombast, bullying and hyperbole as Mr. Brennan exhibited throughout the trial are quite beyond my experience as a jurist, and, I fervently hope, will remain an aberration during the remainder of my time on the bench."
That would have been worth seeing...
