Proper Attire Required

Making a court appearance online does have some advantages. No driving downtown, or even to another city. No parking hassles or expense. No security check.

Casual attire? Better think twice about that one.

Law360 reports, “After hours of virtual argument over whether he should permanently boot a suit accusing Panasonic and several other companies of plotting to stabilize the cost of electrical inductors, a California federal judge reminded one attorney to wear a jacket the next time he was in his court.”

Dressed down for not dressing up. That’s not good.
