    Wear Trump Hat = lose a month's pay, for Canadian Judge

    Yes - in my home town, no less. Judge Bernd Zabel was suspended for a month, without pay, for wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat in his court.

    No judge - anywhere - should wear or display a political statement of any kind in court. Judge Zabel has admitted that wearing the hat the day after the US election was the biggest mistake of his judicial career.

    Probably just a good idea to wear the required clothing and be professional about it. But in this day and age politics is identity and you can never miss an opportunity to spike the football no matter which side of the isle your on. Bunch of children.

    In the U.S. at least, lawyers (and others) must follow judges' orders re: not wearing political symbols in court, or suffer contempt citations. Here's a relevant quote re: the ruling that applies, from the NY Daily News article you cited:

    "Supreme Court ruling allowing judges to prohibit political symbols from the courtroom."
