Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane on Thursday publicly released 48 emails of Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin - many with images of naked women, and others with crude jokes - and said they demonstrated that a misconduct case against him had been wrongly dismissed. The pictures and videos mainly depicted topless women, though several showed full frontal nudity. One contained a graphic depiction of a sex act. The supposed jokes mocked gays, lesbians, feminists, drunken college girls, and, in one message, nuns.

LOS ANGELES - Promoters of Michael Jackson's planned 2009 comeback described in emails how they feared for the megastar's stability, saying he was out of shape and consumed with self-doubt. The Los Angeles Times obtained some 250 pages of messages, most between executives at Anschutz Entertainment Group, which was financing the ill-fated "This Is It" concerts set for London. Some of the emails indicated that executives were concerned that Jackson's planned 50-show stand at AEG's 02 Arena would be an expensive bust.

IT SEEMS THAT the crazy political year of 2015 is a terrible, terrible time to be Hillary Clinton. As it probably should be, in a way. She's just too closely associated with all of the bad things that our perhaps crazy-like-a-fox electorate is worked up about. Income inequality? Her husband fostered that with a pro-Wall Street agenda that included repealing the Glass-Steagall Act, setting the stage for the 2008 economic crisis. Ditto for mass incarceration. As a senator, Hillary Clinton voted to authorize the horribly ill-conceived invasion of Iraq.

HARRISBURG - The state's judicial ethics tribunal on Tuesday suspended Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin for his involvement in the "Porngate" scandal, saying his continued presence on the bench harmed the public's trust in the judiciary. The Court of Judicial Discipline said Eakin sent and received offensive email messages, some containing images of naked women and jokes mocking minorities, women, and others, that have "tainted the Pennsylvania judiciary in the eyes of the public.

THE FUN WE'RE all having reading the embarrassing emails of Hollywood big shots is tempered by the fact that we really shouldn't be seeing them at all. The hacked Sony emails arise (very probably) from an attack by a foreign government. It's (very probably) a form a terrorism, it's illegal and death threats have been made, and that's unacceptable. Hollywood screenwriter Aaron Sorkin said as much recently when he labeled as "morally treasonous" and "spectacularly dishonorable" anyone who publishes the emails.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane said Wednesday that her office had obtained emails among a state judge, his lawyers, and Inquirer reporters because they were housed on her office's computer servers. Responding to an article in The Inquirer reporting that Kane's office had obtained the emails and offered to provide them to other media outlets, Kane said any suggestion that she had acquired the emails from any source other than her servers was "false. " Kane provided no details, but sources said she obtained them because Judge Barry Feudale mistakenly sent the messages to the old email address of a former top prosecutor in the Attorney General's Office.

Even as state Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin apologized for his "insensitive" emails, debate intensified over whether the justice was given a pass last year when his troubling emails first came under scrutiny. Eakin said the offensive messages "do not reflect my character or beliefs. " Nor, he said, "have they ever been part of my consideration of any case or business of the court. " Saying he found it "disconcerting and embarrassing" that his private emails were public, Eakin said Tuesday night, "I sincerely apologize for such content.

TAMPA, FLA. - Former CIA director David Petraeus was shocked to learn last summer that his mistress was suspected of sending threatening emails warning another woman to stay away from him, former staff members and friends told the Associated Press on Monday. Petraeus told these associates that his relationship with the second woman, Tampa socialite and former Philadelphian Jill Kelley, was platonic, although his biographer-turned-lover, Paula Broadwell apparently, saw her as a romantic rival.

"Mildly pornographic. " No worse than what "appears commonly in Playboy. " That was what a Pennsylvania board determined late last year when it cleared state Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin of misconduct even though he had received about 50 pornographic emails on state computers. The Judicial Conduct Board, under fire for its role in the so-called Porngate scandal, has offered a rare glimpse into its normally secret workings by publicly explaining its reasons for clearing Eakin.

PENNSYLVANIA'S political Cold War crept even closer yesterday toward a doomsday scenario - one with the potential to spread nuclear fallout across the criminal-justice landscape, from police departments to the Supreme Court. Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman, a Republican, continued to attack state Attorney General Kathleen Kane, charging the embattled Democrat with felony perjury and related misdemeanors after Ferman's detectives raided Kane's Harrisburg office last month.

By Daniel DiPrinzio For some, email has become the preferred medium to channel their inner e.e. cummings, as they eschew capitalization for an unapologetic army of lowercase letters. But, those of you who equate emailing with texting could face dire consequences in how you are perceived. First off, writing properly in emails should be a no-brainer for people who may think that they, at any time, may face an indictment. How would they want to be represented to the general public, should their messages be subpoenaed and posted online?

The union for narcotics agents in the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office on Monday dropped its bid for a court order to block any immediate release of the so-called Porngate report, saying it was now confident that the report was weeks away from any release. Lawrence Moran Jr., a lawyer for the agents, said he now hoped to persuade the office to remove the names of all narcotics agents from any public report. At issue is a compendium identifying several hundred state employees and others deemed by a special prosecutor to have used government computers to send emails with pornography or other offensive content between 2008 and 2015.

The release of an incendiary report on the exchange of pornography on state computers will be delayed while officials make sure no one is unfairly maligned in the document. The last-minute freeze came after Douglas Gansler, the special prosecutor in the Porngate scandal, provoked an uproar of dread and embarrassment in the state Attorney General's Office this week. He did so by revealing he had prepared a report that publicly named "several hundred" employees in that agency and elsewhere as having used state computers to email pornography or other offensive material.

A prosecutor in Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane's looming criminal trial told a judge Tuesday that Kane's request to tell a jury about her unearthing of offensive emails would mire jurors in "a distraction, a red herring. " But Kane's lawyers said she needed the option of telling the jury about pornographic emails swapped by members of her agency before she took office. Kane is to go on trial Aug. 8 on charges of perjury, official oppression, and other offenses. Prosecutors say she lied about leaking confidential documents to the Daily News to plant a June 2014 story to embarrass a political foe, former state prosecutor Frank Fina.
