Judge in Columbia County, Pennsylvania Tells People to Stop Wearing Pajamas to Court

A Pennsylvania judge has ordered people to dress appropriately when going to court.

Apparently more and more people have been showing up to the Columbia County courthouse in pajamas. 

“We have a growing problem of people not dressing appropriately for court,” district judge Craig Long told WNEP

He recently had a sign installed in his courtroom that reads: “Pajamas are not appropriate attire for district court.”

“I just put it out there as a reminder of the code of conduct that should be followed when appearing in court,” said Judge Long.

“Just like if you’re going to church, you should dress appropriately. We think that if you’re going to court, you should dress the same way.”

But he acknowledged that “it’s not a law,” and that the court won’t be able to enforce what people are wearing.
