Cross dressing lawyer

A male lawyer who appeared in a New Zealand court dressed in an ankle-length skirt, lace stockings and a diamond brooch said he was protesting against a male bias in the country's justice system.

Rob Moodie, a former New Zealand Police Union secretary, stunned the courtroom yesterday when he appeared in women's clothing at a hearing related to a long-running case involving the death of a man in a bridge collapse on a North Island farm.

Mr Moodie said he wore the two-piece women's suit because of what he described as a boys' network in the court room.

"I'm objecting to the male ethos that is dominating this case and from now on I'm going to be dressing as a girl in my daily life," Mr Moodie told Reuters.

"It wouldn't have happened if I hadn't seen the gung-ho attitude in this case. The more this goes on and the deeper the cover-up gets, the frocks will get prettier," he said.

Mr Moodie is married with three children but said he had a strong female gender bias.

"The sexes are not opposite, they're complementary," he said.
