Professor Bainbridge discusses an article here from The Wall Street Journal that quotes a Delaware Superior Court judge in connection with a dress code for those who appear in his court. Most Delaware lawyers know that it is at least an unwritten rule that a "white dress shirt" is expected of lawyers who appear in a Delaware court. One story from some years ago may indicate the Delaware approach. An orientation session for new lawyers was presented for those who recently passed the bar. It was not held in a courtroom, but an attendee who was wearing a sport jacket instead of a suit was quietly asked by one of the judges in attendance (via an usher who delivered the message), to leave and return wearing a suit.
