A Judge and his Risqué Web Site

Hosted by

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
