Obscenity trial halted over judge’s porn

Maybe the take-away here is if a person has been on The Dating Game, he ought not be a judge. Maybe it’s an indicator.

Out in Los Angeles, a high-profile obscenity trial has been delayed because the federal judge hearing it had posted sexually explicit material on his personal Web page, including — the Times Online reports — “footage of a semi-naked man cavorting with a sexually aroused farm animal.”

The judge is Alex Kozinski.

Kozinski. Kozinski. Where have we heard that name before?

Or maybe it was from his appearance on MPR’s Midmorning in April.

Kozinski was named the “#1 Hottie in the Federal Judiciary” by a legal blog some time ago. He nominated himself.
