HARTFORD CITY, Ind. - An attorney who habitually appears in court without socks faces sanctions including possible fines if he shows up without them again in one eastern Indiana courtroom.
Blackford Circuit Judge Dean Young issued an Aug. 25 order directing attorney Todd Glickfield of Marion to wear appropriate business attire, including socks and a tie, in future proceedings in Young's Hartford City courtroom.
Glickfield had appeared without socks in Young's court on Aug. 22. The order says that during a break in proceedings, the court advised Glickfield that he wasn't appropriately dressed as required by court rules, and that Glickfield replied, "I hate socks."
The order also states Glickfield in the past had appeared in court without a tie and an open-collared shirt.
A message seeking comment was left Wednesday at Glickfield's office.
