Florida Judge Warns Attorneys To Wear PANTS During Zoom Hearings

A Florida Circuit Judge has one request for attorneys showing up for court hearings via Zoom: Get out of bed and put some clothes on!

Judge Dennis Bailey made the plea in a letter PUBLISHED by the Weston Bar Association: “It is remarkable how many attorneys appear inappropriately on camera. One male lawyer appeared shirtless and one female attorney appeared still in bed, still under the covers.”

Bailey isn’t a big fan of doing your work while catching some Florida sun either. “Putting on a beach cover-up won’t cover up you’re poolside in a bathing suit,” he wrote.

Since March 16, Broward County’s judicial system has held about 1,200 Zoom meetings.
