A ban on strapless gowns in the prom dress debate in New Jersey has stood up in court.

A judge Wednesday refused to lift the ban imposed by the Readington school principal.

It means girls will have to wear gowns with at least one strap to Friday night's 8th grade prom.

The principal said strapless gowns were too distracting for boys, but parents and students filed suit to overturn the ban.
