Sex News Update

Judge Alex Kozinski

Back in June of 2008 I blogged about Judge Alex Kozinski recussing himself from Ira Isaacs’s obscenity case. (It turned out that the judge had a naughty web site of his own.) Earlier this month Kozinski’s wrist was officially slapped.

From CNN:
Judge Kozinski admonished for explicit items on Web site
“A judicial council on Thursday admonished the chief judge of the nation’s largest federal appeals court for having “sexually explicit photos and videos” on his personal Web site, but decided against any further punishment.

Judge Alex Kozinski, 58, of the San Francisco, California-based 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals previously apologized and had recommended an investigation because of the public controversy over the material.

A panel of judges assigned to investigate concluded Kozinski’s “possession of sexually explicit offensive material combined with his carelessness in failing to safeguard his sphere of privacy was judicially imprudent.” His actions, the panel wrote, “can reasonably be seen as having resulted in embarrassment to the institution of the federal judiciary.”

But Kozinski was not disciplined because he had removed himself from an ongoing obscenity trial when news broke of the visual material on, which the judge launched in 2002, according to the 41-page opinion issued by the judicial council.”

Mind you, I don’t think Kozinski did anything wrong. Having porn pics on one’s computer or website is fine. It’s the double standard that pisses me off. Kozinski likes porn and gets off since he’s a high ranking judge. Isaacs produces porn and gets tried for obscenity.
