Orlando Court Puts Its Foot Down

June 10, 2014

The conservative dress code of the Orlando division of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida is the topic of conversation, as the court turned away potential jurors who showed up in sneakers.

Part of the court’s dress code reads:

You are expected to conduct yourself with reserve and courtesy, and when appearing at the courthouse, must dress appropriately to preserve the dignity of the Court. Proper attire includes coat and tie for men and similarly appropriate attire for women. No jeans, polo shirts or sneakers.

There is very little room for interpretation here and the court seems to be putting its foot down, as it were.

New York Criminal Defense Attorney, Scott H. Greenfield, takes an in-depth look at  these types of dress code violations and how they may impact the justice system. Read his full article on Orlando Court Juror Dress Codes.
