Conrad Rushing, the presiding justice of the Court of Appeal in San Jose, California, for the past 14 years, resigned this week while facing allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination against female employees, according to a report by the San Jose Mercury News.
The Mercury News on Wednesday reported that a confidential five-page report commissioned by the state Judicial Council found that Rushing engaged in sexual conduct at work, including looking at nude photos of women while in his chambers, giving men on his staff preferred assignments, and regularly commenting on the appearance of women on his staff.
