Florida Judges Can’t Wear Colored Robes… Or Flags

They issued a mandate some time last year that judges must wear black robes, and only black robes, throughout Florida courts. It is only an issue locally because some of the judges like to dress casually when they are covering weekend court, such as first appearances, and that may be verboten under the new dictum. Apparently the impetus was from some judges that have expressed some more flair… judges on the east coast with different colors every day of the week and a judge in Central Florida that had a camouflage robe made up.

Apparently, part of the court’s reason for the mandate can be traced back to a code dispute with Donald Trump!
