Third Circuit panel dismisses charges against Judge Kozinski

Ending the brouhaha over Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski’s having stored off-color cartoons, joke photos and other office humor on a private server inadvertently made available to public access, an 11-judge panel has now issued a unanimous 41-page opinion admonishing Kozinski for his error but declining to employ any reprimand or other discipline. Coverage is everywhere: Volokh, Above the Law, Legal Intelligencer. “A handful of prominent ethics experts, including NYU’s Stephen Gillers, Northwestern’s Steven Lubet and Hofstra’s Monroe Friedman, all sent letters in support of Kozinski.” (WSJ Law Blog). Our earlier coverage of the judge is here.
