Ruthann Robson blogs here about Judge Richard Cebull (D. Montana) and his email “joke” about President Obama’s mother that accuses her of promiscuity, bestiality, as well as interracial sex.
Judge Cebull self-reported his misdeeds for investigation by the Chief Justice of the 9th Circuit. And who might that be? None other that Judge Alex Kozinski, who in 2008 “self-reported” his own private cache of degrading and racist pornography on his computer, among other misdeeds. (See Ann’s prior coverage of the Kozinski issue here and here.)
I don’t think it’s going out on a limb to predict that Judge Kozinski will not recommend a sanction of Judge Cebull.
