Federal judge who questioned 'Indian blood' and tribal courts resigns due to sexual harassment
December 26, 2017
A prominent federal judge who has questioned whether certain criminal laws should be based on "Indian blood" and whether tribal courts are fair is resigning after being repeatedly accused of sexual harassment.
Alex Kozinski stepped down from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday, just days after a judicial misconduct complaint was opened. Numerous women, including former law clerks and even a fellow jurist, accused him of inappropriate behavior in stories first reported by The Washington Post.
