It's not entirely clear whether the target is attorneys or all women who show up in court (including witnesses and defendants). One quoted sentence suggests that the "code" would apply to attorneys, but it hardly seems likely that attorneys would show up in court wearing sundresses, miniskirts or sweatpants, or, for that matter, their male counterparts would show up wearing shorts or tank tops. Attorneys are drilled in law school  to choose proper "professional" attire -- this is usually not something that comes from the courts. So I would be somewhat surprised if he's really targeting attorneys. The other point is that the screed is going to be in a newsletter. That hardly sounds like a formal dress code. There is reason to be concerned, however. First, he compares the courtroom to a church. This might be natural for a retired chaplain, but he really should put a sock into that one. And, no matter how sexist his preferences may sound (for all we know he considers knee-length skirt to be "revealing"), the usual advice for lawyers is to cater to judges' whims or risk antagonizing them -- unless, of course, the judge gets sanctioned by some oversight institution.

This is kind of amazing. (Full disclosure: I also did not read the books.)

The (mostly female) workforce that's getting an all-too-small chunk of tuition dollars.

Grimm alleges the decision to carry through with the charges may have been influenced by “wide publicity about sexual assaults in the military.”

[re-shared] WTF is wrong with Carl Levin? He can't retire soon enough! This is just the latest sign of his sudden lurch towards insanity that became obvious with his "bipartisan" effort to kill the filibuster reform.
