A former law clerk of the late Stephen Reinhardt on Thursday alleged the former judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit repeatedly harassed her as she worked for him in 2017 and 2018.

In her written testimony at a House Judiciary subcommittee hearing on sexual misconduct in the federal judiciary, Olivia Warren said she was not there “to destroy Judge Reinhardt’s legacy, to erase his significant contributions to the law, or to condemn him.”

Rather, Warren testified that she was there to describe her difficulties in reporting her concerns, after the repeated harassment by the late judge.

Born Stephen Shapiro ? And he changed his name to Reinhardt? Anyone see the significance of this?

Interesting that she waited until he was dead and couldn't defend himself to go public with this.

Doesn't seem significant. He may have been adopted by his step-father.

Reinhardt was born Stephen Roy Shapiro into a Jewish family in New York City, to lawyer Samuel Shapiro, and Silvia Handelsman. Reinhardt changed his name after his mother divorced his father and married film director and producer Gottfried Reinhardt.

9th Circuit Icon Stephen Reinhardt Accused Of Sexual Harassment, Misconduct
So I am not sure why you are bringing this up? Maybe with this qualification, you want him to run for president or something? If you are a Trump supporter, sexual harassment and misconduct are not really issues for you.
