No Jacket Required


If you haven't heard the news already, the Criminal County Courts of Harris County yesterday relaxed the dress code for the summer in light of our current conditions:
We suspend the requirement for male attorneys to wear coat and tie, instead requesting a collared shirt and slacks, with comparable attire for the female attorneys, when they attend our bond docket courrooms in the Family Law Center.  This rule shall take efect May 21, 2018 and remain in effect until October 1, 2018, and shall apply to the bond docket courtrooms of all the undersigned judges.
And, yes, it is signed by ALL of the County Court Judges.

It is still advised that, given the concerns of the Fire Marshals at the Old Family Law building,  all occupants of the building dress accordingly.

The written communication appears to have some room for interpretation. I will wear a tuxedo t-shirt next time I go to court and see what happens.

Next time I have a misdemeanor only docket, I am golden.

Would it have killed them to talk to the felony courts, or would that forced a wholly different conversation on accommodations?

They can talk all they want to the felony courts, but good luck getting them to be reasonable!
