GREAT NEWS! Another one bites the dust.
A federal court judge who hails from the infamous 9th Circuit liberal court has abruptly retired amidst an onslaught of sexual abuse allegations.
Kozinksi has feuded with President Trump extensively.
It’s always great when the swamp drains itself!
Alex Kozinski, a distinguished federal appeals court judge, announced his retirement Monday, effective immediately, after sexual misconduct allegations continued to dog the once-respected justice.
In a statement released by his attorney, the 67-year-old Kozinski partially apologized for his behavior but also tried to frame parts of it as a misunderstanding.
“I’ve always had a broad sense of humor and a candid way of speaking to both male and female law clerks alike. In doing so, I may not have been mindful enough of the special challenges and pressures that women face in the workplace. It grieves me to learn that I caused any of my clerks to feel uncomfortable; this was never my intent,” he wrote.
“For that, I sincerely apologize,” he added.
The judge’s career, which includes 32 years on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, appears to have been undone over 10 days, as 15 women continued to step forward with personal accounts of Kozinski allegedly making explicit remarks about them, exposing them to pornography or touching them inappropriately.
