A $100 million courthouse that recently opened in Franklin County, Ohio, is making headlines because of its staircase. It’s made of glass, so women who work there and visit are hesitant to take the stairs because they don’t want someone getting a peek up their skirts.

Judge Julie Lynch, who wears dresses every day under her robe, says you can see through the stairs and get an intimate look at someone who is going up the steps. Some worry that a person could use a cell phone to take pictures of someone going up the stairs.

Apparently, it’s causing enough alarm because the security guards are warning women about taking the stairs. Judge Lynch speculates that men must have designed the stairs.
