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
"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,"
