In Delaware, skirts that fall four inches above the knee are prohibited. A traffic court in California has banned flip flops. And a Michigan man missed his hearing after he was sent home for wearing black jeans. Judges say the new rules are there to remind people that “courts are a place where serious business is conducted.”
