Couture in Court 7

For those who prefer briefs to boxers, a periodic collection of fashionable events in the judicial system:

Ralph Lauren's Polo pony

In court, the beauty biz can get ugly:

All that glitters may not be gold:

And maybe it's all the printed flowers springing up this season, but textile manufacturers seem particularly allergic to copyright infringement:

Finally, the most frequently mentioned "couture in court" over the past week was probably not the subject of a lawsuit, but the outfit worn by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling as the plaintiff and star witness in a copyright action.  The New York Times described her ensemble unusually as a "black dress and pinstriped suit," the New York Post as a brown pinstriped suit accessorized with a charm bracelet of the author's own literary characters, and Portfolio.com as a "simple grey pinstripe suit."  Maybe it's a trick of the light, or maybe Ms. Rowling has cast a confundus charm on the assembled reporters.  But if the evidence in the case is this conflicting, it's no wonder the judge has suggested that the parties settle.
