9 more women say 9th Circuit Judge Kozinski subjected them to inappropriate behavior

Nine more women say that Alex Kozinski - a high-profile judge who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit - subjected them to sexual comments or other conduct, including four who say he touched them inappropriately.

Kozinski, known for his libertarian views and colorful written opinions, already had been accused of subjecting several women to a range of inappropriate sexual conduct or comments, and the circuit's chief judge on Thursday took the first step in launching an investigation into his behavior. The matter was assigned Friday to the 2nd Circuit judicial council.

The new allegations - which span decades and include not just those who worked for Kozinski but those who encountered him at events - bring the total number of women accusing the judge of inappropriate behavior to at least 15.

One recent law student at the University of Montana said that Kozinski, at a 2016 reception, pressed his finger into the side of her breast, which was covered by her clothes, and moved it with some "deliberateness" to the center, purporting to be pushing aside her lapel to fully see her name tag.

1. Will the House impeach, or shall we just cross our fingers and wish for resignation?
