Dick move by the judge. Don't allow a light hearted atmosphere if you're going to flip on it as soon as someone says bye to you. Be consistent.
That was my take on it, too. It seemed like he was kind of having fun and joking, and then he hammered her when she did the same.
I guess I could possibly see the Hispanic thing that Dante mentioned, though. I didn't pick up on that possibility.
