HARTFORD CITY, Ind. (September 3, 2014) A lawyer 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 on Aug. 25 directing attorney Todd Glickfield of Marion to wear appropriate business attire, including socks and a tie, in future proceedings in Young's courtroom in Hartford, City.
Glickfield appeared without socks on Aug 22 in Young's court.
The order says that during a break in proceedings, the court advised Glickfield that he wasn't appropriately dressed as required by court rules.
The order says Glickfield replied, "I hate socks."
Glickfield previously appeared in court without a tie and with an open-collared shirt, the order said.
A message seeking comment was left Wednesday at Glickfield's office.
