(The circuit courts are the second most prestigious courts in the United States. The Ninth Circuit controls California and other nearby states. Judge Kozinski was appointed to the Ninth Circuit by Ronald Reagan.)
Alex Kozinski, chief judge of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, maintained a website with deviant pornography including a photo of naked women on all fours painted to look like cows, a video of a half-dressed man cavorting with a sexually aroused farm animal. When exposed, Kozinski acknowledged that some of the material was inappropriate, but defended other sexually explicit content as "funny."
Scott Glover for the LA Times describes the site's contents:
The sexually explicit material on Kozinski's site earlier this week was extensive, including images of masturbation, public sex and contortionist sex. There was a slide show striptease featuring a transsexual, and a folder that contained a series of photos of women's crotches as seen through snug fitting clothing or underwear. There were also themes of defecation and urination, though they are not presented in a sexual context.
Kozinski didn't realize the site was accessible by the public, claimed he uploaded some of the material accidentally, and has since blocked public access to the site.
Here's the real kicker - - he's presiding over an obscenity trial right now.
