When a federal judge said during a panel discussion this week that some female attorneys need to dress more appropriately for court -- mentioning one woman attired as though she had stopped in "on her way home from the gym" -- she probably didn't realize she'd opened some floodgates.

One such complaint, from a male judge, involved women who wear "blouses so short there's no way the judges wouldn't look."
