What do I wear to court?
You should dress comfortably, but not too casually. Dress for court as if you were going to work or an important event. You might want to wear layered clothing since courtroom temperatures may vary considerably, requiring the removal or addition of a sweater or jacket. House slippers or pajamas are not permitted. Cellular phones are not allowed in the courtroom. Hats are only allowed to be worn in the courtroom for religious reasons.
