Sockless attorney irks judge

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 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 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. The order says Glickfield replied, “I hate socks.”

The order also states Glickfield previously appeared in court without a tie and with an open-collared shirt.

A message seeking comment was left Wednesday at Glickfield’s office.
