Gee just like most tv news gals. I'm sure they were not hired for their looks.

There is much more to worry about in the Court than whether a Judge does not like a lawyers skirt. All your rules favor the Male when you need to consider the Female and her world. Perhaps some of these males should live the life of a woman for several months before they produce this type of sexist rhetoric. How about worrying over other problems. Like, letting a defendant in ANY matter have his/her say? All to many times, a judge will have see a case, heard the procescutions side and the police or others and barely give the defendant time to speak. They are innocent until proven guilty so let's cut the bias crap. You complain about too big of workloads. That is NOT OUR PROBLEM. Hire another judge or two. Find other ways to streamline thi like fully computerized records. I've seen courtroom officers and police w/ stomaks big as expectant mothers in 9th month. Far more disgusting than a short skirt. Let's get real

Come on, guys, let's be real. A professional is a professional. Dress like one. There are plenty of ways to express your individual sense of style, while still presenting yourself in a professional and classy manner. Save the miniskirts for the next party.

And if they wear a short shirt that makes half of it bare, I'm sure they will hear plenty of complaints. If you bother to read the article, it isn't saying that the breasts of the female lawyers are too large, it's that they are inappropriately exposed in the courtroom.

Forget the lawyers...what about the clients? Have you been to court lately -- cut-offs, flip-flops, halter tops.
Where's Judge Judy when you need her?

Oops, my mixup - Judge Munster. It was Sheriff D-Day.
OMG! I've seen both moves at least 20 times each. I never made the D-Day connection, but the sheriff looked so familiar. THANK YOU!!:)
