FROM THIS EPISODE

One of America’s most powerful judges is under investigation at his own request, due to a flap over what might be called dirty pictures on a website maintained with his family. Were the pictures obscene? Was the website public?

Main Topic A Judge and his Risqué Web Site

Alex Kozinski is presiding judge of the 9th Federal Circuit Court of Appeals which covers the western states.  Last week he was hearing a high-profile obscenity trial in Los Angeles.  Just as jury selection ended, the LA Times ran an article about pictures on a website Kozinski maintained. There is still heated dispute about whether the pictures were “obscene,” but Kozinski shut down the website and declared a mistrial.  At his request, US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has empanelled five other judges to conduct an investigation
