Patterico's Pontifications



Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:12 pm

WHY YOU DON’T PONTIFICATE WITHOUT THE FACTS: California Attorney General Lockyer’s letter regarding Judge Kozinski, mentioned below, is debunked here by UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh. Although Volokh is a former Kozinski clerk, he is credible on the issue, in my judgment. Volokh is a straight shooter who calls ’em like he sees ’em. Lockyer, by contrast, joked that he hoped Ken Lay would be sent to prison so he would be raped. Between the two, I think Volokh gets the nod on credibility. Moroever, I just don’t think that Kozinski would do what Lockyer accused him of doing. He’s not that dumb.

Without more, I have concluded that Lockyer’s letter is just inaccurate.
