Full Version: Judges sacked for watching porn
FightBack Forums > Discussion > News / Press Articles

Three judges have been sacked for viewing pornographic material via their official IT accounts, the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office has said.

The pornography was not illegal in content, a spokesman added.

However the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice concluded it was an "inexcusable misuse" of their official accounts and "wholly unacceptable conduct for a judicial office holder".

A fourth judge resigned before the official inquiry had concluded.

District Judge Timothy Bowles, Immigration Judge Warren Grant and Deputy District Judge and Recorder Peter Bullock have been removed from office.

The three judges were not linked in any way. A fourth judge, Recorder Andrew Maw, was also found to have viewed similar inappropriate material via his judicial IT account.

Judge Maw worked at Lincoln County Court, District Judge Bowles at Romford County Court, Judge Bullock on the North Eastern Circuit, and Judge Grant at the Immigration and Asylum Chamber, based at Taylor House in London.

Well blow me, judges are human too. Mind you using official computers was a bit of a bad judgement.

Aiming to film it for the judges?
It is somewhat ironic when judges, who are expected to apply the law, often with a fine distinction between right and wrong, do not use that same judgement in their personal life by abiding by the rules of their official IT system.

Mind you, it does make you wonder what sort of porn?

To me a District Judge sorta conjures up a vision of a public school type, brought up by a nanny, so perhaps a little domination would be their preference.
Immigration Judge? Maybe centred on ethnic minorities? A subconscious desire to see them F'd smile.gif
