Federal court working group on workplace conduct announced

In his Year-End Report, Chief Justice Roberts announced that the federal courts would be forming a working group on workplace conduct, a reaction to the recent scandal involving Ninth Circuit Judge Alex Kozinski as well as workplace harassment scandals in prominent industries nationwide.  The membership of the working group has now been announced.  It includes:

James Duff, Director, Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts

Chief Judge Jeffrey Howard, First Circuit Court of Appeals

Judge M. Margaret McKeown, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

Chief Judge Julie A. Robinson, U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas

Judge Sarah S. Vance, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana

Margaret Weigand, Chief Executive, Third Circuit Court of Appeals

Jeffrey Minear, Counselor to the Chief Justice

John Cooke, Deputy Director of the Federal Judicial Center

The working group will eventually issue its findings in a written report.
