HR Strange But True!
February 21, 2002

The New Zealand government says it will take no action against six judges and a court official who accessed Internet sex sites using their work computers, according to Reuters.

The country's attorney general, Margaret Wilson, says four of the district court judges accessed the sexually explicit material for work-related reasons, while access by the fifth was an accident and brief.

The government had ordered the inquiry after a routine computer scan found that four judges, later revised to six judges plus one official, appeared to have accessed Internet sex sites while at work. Wilson said Chief District Court Judge David Carruthers had sought an explanation from the five judges under his control.

"I am satisfied with the information provided by the Chief District Court judge and am not intending to take any further action in relation to these judges," Wilson said.
