When you have a female judge:
Women get away with some of the most outrageous clothing choices when they come to court. I think this is because male judges (who wouldn't hesitate to dress down a male dressed inappropriately) have the old fashioned notions that it is not their place to comment on a female's clothing. However, today I was in a court with a female judge.
A young woman walked into the court with a not quite see through blouse that looked like it had been painted on, no bra, and everything+ that a young woman is supposed to have. All eyes male in the room looked up as she walked up to the bench.
The judge was looking down at the paperwork as the young woman walked up. Then the judge looked up and this conversation took place:
Judge: To begin with, that clothing is not adequate for court. Where do you live?
Woman: Here in the county.
Judge: Deputy, how much longer are you going to be in court today?
Deputy: This is my last case.
Judge: Okay, what's your next court date?
Deputy: 25 October.
Judge: We're continuing this case until 25 October. Ms. Smith you will come back to court on 25 October wearing appropriate clothes. Good day.
