Exclusive 0611_chad_johnson_court_judge_article_tmz
Chad Johnson has filed a motion asking the judge who jailed him Monday to reconsider her ruling … our sources has learned.

Adam Swickle, the lawyer whose ass was slapped by the former NFLer, filed the legal docs … claiming Johnson meant no disrespect when he tapped the attorney on the rear.

As we previously reported … Johnson was in court on a probation violation in his domestic violence case when the judge was about to accept a settlement that did NOT involve jail.  After the ass slap, the judge tossed the settlement and threw Johnson in the pokey for 30 days.

A hearing is set for Monday.  In the meantime, Johnson sits in the slammer.
