Most Helpful Guy
i just realized I never answered your question earlier, I just told a story and was out, hahaha. anyway, for my purposes, I intentionally disrespect the court because I don't respect the court system and I want them to know that, even at my own expense. I won't go into my whole ideology, and most people tell me I'm nuts anyway, haha. but I'd recommend other people dress nicely if you're looking to get off easy. I've had good luck, they could just as easily sink me if I got the wrong judge or ADA. So don't do what I do, I'm an idiot, haha. Where I live, in massachusetts, I think they don't even allow you in the courtroom in shorts. Pretty sure I saw some argument between a court officer and some dude there for court about shorts once, maybe twice. At least dress "business-casual", and if want to rock a straight-up suit, go for it.
