Code of Silence: Sexual Misconduct in the Federal Courts and the Secret System Judges Use to Investigate Complaints

Program Number
Program Date

This seminar will explore the process in which judicial misconduct and disability complaints are handled by the courts under federal law, problems in that process, and the loopholes in the nation's sexual harassment and workplace laws. It will also review case studies of particularly problematic misconduct matters both during and before the "Metoo movement" that resulted in hasty retirements and in the impeachment and prosecution of a federal judge. Discussed in detail will be the case of Samuel Bristow Kent, the only federal judge in US history to be impeached for sex crimes.
