For Want of a Tie Justice was Denied?

Is this going to be the new dress code for lawyers appearing before this lady magistrate?

No red tie
White shirt
Black pants
No boxer shorts

Sounds absurd? Well this story relates how the lawyer was not allowed to be present in court if he refused to comply with her order.

You can shake your head and wonder what is going on with our judges and this is incident may make it to the David Frost show on how ludicrous some people are.

Being a magistrate requires a person to act with dignity and decorum and not behave like a tin pot dictator.

Remember that old verse that went

"For want of a nail, a shoe was lost
For want of a shoe, a horse was lost
For want of a horse, a battle was lost
For want of a battle, a kingdom was lost."

Kudos to the lawyer for taking the right action and we hope proper action is taken against the magistrate.
This incident is no small matter and shows we must appoint the right people for such important posts or justice will be hindered.

Anyone here seen that lawyer's red tie? Maybe it was a really bright red and with flashing disco lights?
That's still no excuse as she could have told him to disconnect the battery.
