Environmental Court Judge Larry Potter apologized to a man for calling him "hoss" Thursday during a hearing.

The man, Danny Carter, also apologized to Potter for the exchange earlier in the day. Carter was in court over allegations regarding his property when Potter addressed him casually as "hoss" and Carter objected. He was threatened with jail and ordered to sit down and his case was pushed to the end of the daily docket.

Court employees said the apologies came later in the day. One observer described it as "friendly" and said both men "sort of were hat-in-hand."
