An attorney who habitually appears in court without socks faces sanctions, including possible fines, if he shows up without them again in one Indiana courtroom. Blackford Circuit Judge Dean Young issued an order last week directing attorney Todd Glickfield to wear appropriate business attire, including socks and a tie, in future proceedings in Young's Hartford City courtroom. Glickfield had appeared without socks in Young's court a few days earlier; the order says that during a break in proceedings, the court advised Glickfield that he wasn't appropriately dressed as required by court rules and he replied, "I hate socks." The order also states Glickfield previously appeared in court without a tie and with an open-collared shirt. (More attorney stories.)
