Judge Alex Kozinski: The Two Faces of Anonymity - the ethical, legal and constitutional implications of anonymity in the digital age

Markkula Center for Applied Ethics ; Commonwealth Club of Silicon Valley

***************  Event moved to de Saisset Museum *************

Since 2007, Alex Kozinski has served as the Chief Judge of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Born in Bucharest, Romania, the son of Holocaust survivors, Kozinski immigrated to the United States with his parents in 1962. He earned his undergraduate degree at U.C.L.A. and graduated from U.C.L.A.'s School of Law in 1975. Only ten years later, Ronald Reagan appointed him to the Ninth Circuit Court.

Kozinski is known for his incisive intellect and witty, sometimes irreverent writing and speeches. (In 2002, in a case involving Mattel and MCA Records, Kozinski concluded his opinion with the line "The parties are advised to chill.") It would be unlikely for someone to graduate from a U.S. law school without coming across some of Judge Kozinski's opinions; other readers may have come across his writing in The New York Times or the Wall Street Journal. And there is this: Aaron Swartz, the cyberactivist whose recent death is being mourned by many, is listed as the organizer of "The Unofficial Judge Alex Kozinski Site."
