Alex kozinski dating game
A lawyer who was not identified said Kozinski approached her when she was alone at a legal event in Los Angeles in 2008 and kissed her on the lips and gave her a bear hug with no warning.
The newspaper said the woman's husband confirmed the incident and said the couple didn't think they could do anything because of the judge's position.
She said it came after she declined his offer to go to a motel and have sex.'He said if you won't sleep with me, I want to touch you, and then he reached over, and — this was the most antiseptic — he grabbed each of my breasts and squeezed them,' Miller said.
Leah Litman, a law professor at the University of California, Irvine, told the Post that the judge talked about having just had sex and pinched her side and leg at a restaurant the night before they appeared together on a panel at her school in July.
He is known for his irreverent opinions and his clerks often win prestigious clerkships at the U. She said one set of images was of college-age students where some were 'inexplicably naked while everyone else was clothed.' Another set was a type of digital flip book that allowed users to mix and match heads, torsos and legs to create an image of a naked woman.
Bond said the judge asked if she thought the pornography was photo-shopped or if it aroused her sexually.'I was in a state of emotional shock, and what I really wanted to do was be as small as possible and make as few movements as possible and to say as little as possible to get out,' said Bond, now 41.
[T]he LA Times story, authored by Scott Glover, is riddled with half-truths, gross mischaracterizations and outright lies.
The “server” is actually just another home computer that sits next to my desk in our home office, and that we use to store files, perform back-ups, and route the Internet to the family network.
Kozinski said in a statement through an attorney that many of the things being said about him were not true but he deeply regretted that his 'unusual sense of humor caused offense or made anyone uncomfortable.''I have always tried to treat my male and female clerks the same,' he said. Last week, The Post reported that six former clerks or more junior staff members accused Kozinski of inappropriate behavior, including showing them pornography.
Kozinski was chief judge of the 9th Circuit, the largest federal appeals court circuit in the country, from 2007 to 2014. The 9th Circuit has opened a misconduct inquiry that was transferred Friday to the Judicial Council of the 2nd U. Heidi Bond, who clerked for the judge from 2006 to 2007, told the newspaper she recalled three instances in which he asked her to look at images of naked people.
Apparently, if a person is able to find a link to an item in the “stuff” file, and he knows what he is doing, it is possible for him to reverse engineer his way into other items stored in that file without our knowledge or consent. Kozinski himself welcomed visitors when he promoted himself in the "Judicial Hotties" contest run on the conspicuous blog Underneath Their Robes and provided links to his server. If the presence of certain files on a judge’s computer is a truly a newsworthy matter, it would have been so months earlier, before Alex was assigned [the Isaacs] trial, and certainly a few days earlier, before a jury had been chosen and the trial had commenced.
But what excuse is there for timing the story with surgical precision so as to do maximum damage to the judicial process?
