    The officers of the court have to make general rules to deal with the worst offenders. No doubt criminals have smuggled homemade weapons, drugs, etc, with head gear.

    I'm sure this woman would reconsider her position if a passing Arian Brother used her precious scarf to choke her out.

    She wasn't harmed, and franky if Allah wouldn't forgive the transgression then that's all the more reason to accept Jesus who doesn't have a dress-code.

    The lady is foolish if she believes taking off her scarf for just security check means she'll somehow face hell or something.
    How covering hair is meant to signify modesty is beyond me as well :/

    I'm conflicted on this one. On one hand, the courts do require that people remove their "hats". On the other hand I have never heard of a court requiring that a person remove religious head gear. I have seen Jewish men wear a yamika and I have seen Sikhs wear turbins in court.

    I file this one under "activist judge".

    First, I haven't heard of a law stating you have to remove headwear when entering a courtroom.

    Second, in terms of what is considered cordial, it is proper for a man to remove his hat indoors, however it has always been optional for a woman to wear hats or other head apparel.

    While I agree that it is a judge's prerogative, unless it can be shown that the judge has required other women to remove their head apparel, I find it likely he was making a special case of this woman because she was Muslim. If they can't find a precedent in that courtroom, the judge should be censured at the very least.

    In this particular court? this isn't state or national law, it's this specific court's security policy to be enforced at the court's security officers' discresion

    I can see a security policy wherein a person would be required to temporarily remove their headgear for security checks. But they should be allowed to put them back on after that check. If it was a case of security check, which typically occurs outside of the courtroom, I'd think that this person simply wouldn't be allowed to enter - therefore there would be no contempt charge since they were never actually in the court or in the presence of the judge.

    I missed the previous post. The example of the yamika is spot on, IMO.

    Was this a policy specific to that individual judge, court house, county, or state, or are we all talking about a Federal law?

    If you actually knew anything about Christianity you would know that that dress code comes from the church, not Jesus or God.
