A Pennsylvania judge has posted a gentle reminder that pjs aren’t appropriate attire for the courtroom.

    reminds me of an anecdote where a NZ Judge kept on saying to a lawyer new in town I cannot hear you, I cannot hear you...Perplexed the lawyer asked a more senior member of the bar whether this particular judge was hard of hearing. The senior lawyer replied not at all, but you are wearing brown shows and that my young friend is not appropriate attire in this Court.

    says more about that particular judge than the lawyer in my view.
