 (Catawissa) -- A judge in Columbia County is trying to put a kibosh on a rash of people wearing pajama bottoms in court. 

Magisterial District Judge Craig Long of Columbia County has even put a new sign in his Catawissa Township office that he hopes will keep people from wearing pajamas in court.

It reads, "Pajamas are not appropriate attire for district court.'' 

Long says they have a growing problem of people not dressing appropriately for court, and he wants to remind people that there's a code of conduct that should be followed in court. 

Although Long notes that his reminder isn't a rule that can be enforced, he says he hopes that the sign will put the thought into people's heads before they appear in court.
