  1. I’m sorry, but Sanai has admitted that this whole thing is part of his “litigation strategy” to win the divorce case where he has already been called one of the most abusive litigants that the district judge has ever seen. He has lost all credibility here, and should lose his law license for improperly abusing the courts in an attempt to win the divorce case. I’m disgusted.

  2. For those of you concerned about the age of Kozinski’s son, he’s not a minor. two links here

    one with Yale saying the stuff was he that downloaded a lot of this stuff himself.

  3. In fact the son, Yale even says it’s a mistake that the site was made public.

    However after the incredible controversy he said that if he had it to do over again, he would take a pass. He site was never meant to be public, Yale Kozinski said. “The fact that it was publicly accessible actually is my fault, too,” he said. “I made a mistake in configuring it”

  4. Kozinski is certainly guilty of stupidity, primarily in not securing his home network.

    But the breaking into his server and taking the stuff was a far bigger ethical breach. Sanai should be disbarred. There is no ethical difference between what was done electronically and walking through an unlocked door to a house and searching through a file cabinet inside.

  5. Isn’t that a form of theft which can be prosecuted?

  6. Tom J, if your son configured your computer and made a mistake you weren’t aware of, and you happened to be one of the busiest jurists in the world and didn’t notice, is that proof of stupidity?

    Kozinski didn’t put the files up… he didn’t open the server… he didn’t disseminate anything… It’s not relevant.

    I appreciate Patterico boosting the profile of his excellent blog by collating all the links, but for once I wish he’d bring out his outrage. Perhaps it would just be inappropriate, and I guess I wouldn’t want that crazy sockpuppeteer Cyrus harassing me for years as retribution.

    Scott, Tom J, I really don’t think Cyrus broke the law this time, though it appears he breaks the law all the time (read the links). The server was public, and whether that was the son’s accident or not, Cyrus had no way of knowing it was meant to be private. Sure, he’s slime and rude to search in the private lives of his enemies, but I can’t see him getting criminally prosecuted for it. He obviously has enormous contempt for the judicial process and should be disbarred and I also think he should be evaluated by a psychiatric professional for his own sake.
