Too much Ado about ...ummm...Undies !!Views: 176
Sep 18, 2008 7:33 pm Too much Ado about ...ummm...Undies !!

Today this news,which I found pretty amusing, happened to catch my eyes (via Business Line)

'RIVIERA BEACH A judge has decided a law banning sagging pants in this town is unconstitutional after a teenager spent a night in jail on accusations he exposed too much underwear.

Julius Hart, 17, was charged last week after an officer said he spotted the teenager riding his bicycle with 4 to 5 inches of blue-and-black boxer shorts revealed.

Hart's public defender, Carol Bickerstaff, urged a judge Monday to strike down the sagging pants law, telling him: "Your honor, we now have the fashion police."

Circuit Judge Paul Moyle ruled that the law was unconstitutional based on "the limited facts" of the case. Technically, however, the charge hasn't been dropped yet: a new arraignment awaits Hart on Oct. 5.

Voters in Riviera Beach approved the law in March. A first offense for sagging pants carries a $150 fine or community service, and habitual offenders face the possibility of jail time.'

~~To me the Law banning clothings that shows peoples inner lives seemed pretty reasonable but obviously the Judge happens to think otherwise. (Afterall there is a reason why this particular peace of clothing is called underwear)
~~Are there any similar Laws in India banning any particular item of clothing??
~~If not, can one challenge a private institution's protocol requiring one to dress up in a certain way??
(ofcourse assuming that by doing that one doesn't necessarily want freedom to flash undies in the institute)
