One set of images she remembered was of college-age students at a party where "some people were inexplicably naked while everyone else was clothed." Another was a sort of digital flip book that allowed users to mix and match heads, torsos and legs to create an image of a naked woman.Bond is one of six women – all former clerks or externs in the Ninth Circuit – who alleged to the Washington Post in recent weeks that Kozinski, now 67 and still serving as a judge on the court, subjected them to a range of inappropriate sexual conduct or comments.In an interview with the Times last week, Kozinski acknowledged posting sexual content on his Web site.He defended some of the adult content as "funny," but conceded that other postings were inappropriate, the newspaper said.A Beverly Hills lawyer who indicated he had a dispute with the 9th Circuit said he was the source of the Times article.The Times account is "riddled with half-truths, gross mischaracterizations and outright lies," she said.She also faulted the media for repeating and embellishing what she described as misleading statements in the Times about the material. We took his responses into account before publication and included what he said in our stories."Those articles, Lauter added, "already have dealt with the salient issues."Meanwhile Monday, U. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts transferred a review of Kozinski's conduct to the judicial council of a different circuit.The newspaper's California editor, David Lauter, said in a statement that the articles were fair and accurate and "speak for themselves."The stories "raised important issues on a matter of significant public concern," Lauter said. The chairman of the judicial council of the Philadelphia-based 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, Chief Judge Anthony Scirica, then named himself and four other judges to handle the ethics investigation.
Heidi Bond, who clerked for Kozinski from 2006 to 2007, said the porn was not related to any case.
She said she tried to answer the judge'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 image.
