COLUMBUS, Ohio -- An Ohio judge who wears dresses has rendered a verdict on the airy staircase with glass steps at the new county courthouse: she plans to take the elevators.

Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Julie Lynch says the stairs at the building that opened Monday in Columbus have the potential to draw peeping from below. She tells The Columbus Dispatch people who wear dresses, skirts and kilts should know about the risk.

County Director of Public Facilities Management Jim Goodenow says there have been discussions about whether anything should be done about the situation. The newspaper reports that officials don't want to alter the building's artistic integrity. So for now, security guards have been instructed to watch for people craning their necks up at the stairway.
