Prominent appeals court judge to be investigated over sex misconduct claims

Prominent appeals court judge to be investigated over sex misconduct claims

"I would never intentionally do anything to offend anyone and it is regrettable that a handful have been offended by something I may have said or done", the judge was quoted as saying.

After the story broke, he told the LA Times he had no recollection of showing porn to any of the clerks and he was not too anxious about the allegations.

It isn't all, as it turns out.

Murphy, a former 9th Circuit clerk, described how the judge had commented on how she should work out naked in a gym during a discussion with her and other clerks - pressing on as others in the group tried to change the subject.

Kozinski was appointed to the 9th Circuit by President Ronald Reagan in 1985. He had always been mentioned as a possible nominee for the Supreme Court and was known for his engaging legal opinions and personal essays, as well as his colorful personality on and off the bench. The judge answered the phone and asked her where she was.

Since news broke on December 8 of six former clerks and externs accusing Judge Alex Kozinski of sexual harassment and misconduct, more women have come forward with their own stories of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals judge's odious behavior.

The chief judge of a federal appeals court on Thursday initiated an inquiry into harassment accusations involving another judge that were reported by The Washington Post, a court filing showed.

Joanna Grossman The professor at SMU Dedman School of Law wrote onTwitter on December 9 about her clerkship experience at the Ninth Circuit from 1994 to 1995: "Kozinski sent a memo to all the judges suggesting that a rule prohibiting female attorneys from wearing push-up bras would be more effective than the newly convened Gender Bias Task Force".

Anthony J. Scirica, then the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, wrote that Kozinski's "conduct exhibiting poor judgment with respect to this material created a public controversy that can reasonably be seen as having resulted in embarrassment to the institution of the federal judiciary". "His disrespect for women is legendary".

"When this happened, I felt like a prey animal - as if I had to make myself small", Bond wrote in a first-person account of the encounter. The stress of working under those conditions, she said, almost led her to quit. Since we haven't talked to them, we can't know the particulars of each decision to leave, though it's a hell of a time to leave what was once considered one of the plummest clerkship opportunities in the country. The judge, Lithwick wrote, asked where she was, and when she said she was in a hotel room, he responded, "What are you wearing?" You don't sleep if I say so. Bond. "Do you understand?"
