Judge alex kozinski dating game
The friend, fellow romance novelist Eve Ortega, provided the same emails.She confirmed that Bond had told her years ago that Kozinski made inappropriate sexual comments and showed her porn.“You said you would warn off other women thinking of clerking for him.And if there’s a woman out there he harassed worse than you, do you really want to be pitted against her? I’m worried that this is what he’s asking you to do — to be the female, intelligent face of his defense and make whoever it is accusing him look like a stupid slut, and then he hopefully never has to actually address those allegations.”Kozinski was born in Romania to Holocaust survivors in 1950, and the family fled the communist state when he was a boy.Bond said she knew that she was to come to the judge’s office when her phone beeped twice.She said she tried to answer Kozinski’s inquiries as succinctly and matter-of-factly as possible. If the question was about photoshopping, Bond said, she would focus on minor details of the images.Bond said the judge also showed her a chart he claimed he and his friends from college had made to list the women with whom they had had sexual relations.
Murphy, who was 30 at the time of the incident and is now 36, provided The Post with a 2012 email showing that she told a mentor about what had happened at the time.Decades ago, long before he was a federal judge, he appeared on the television show “The Dating Game,” Kozinski was appointed to the 9th Circuit by President Ronald Reagan in 1985.He is an atypical federal appeals court judge — authoring irreverent opinions and not shying, as many of his colleagues do, from media appearances.A former clerk for Judge Alex Kozinski said the powerful and well-known jurist, who for many years served as chief judge on the U. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, called her into his office several times and pulled up pornography on his computer, asking if she thought it was photoshopped or if it aroused her sexually.Heidi Bond, who clerked for Kozinski from 2006 to 2007, said the porn was not related to any case.
She is one of two former clerks who said Kozinski asked them to view porn in his chambers.
