PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A high-ranking federal judge investigated for posting sexually explicit material on his own Web site has been cleared with an admonishment by fellow judges.

The panel says Chief Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was "careless" and "judicially imprudent" in not safeguarding his files.

The 41-page decision is being made public Friday by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court, which was asked to investigate the California-based judge.

The panel says Kozinski embarrassed the federal judiciary.

However, the judges say the matter should end with the admonishment, combined with Kozinski's apology and other nspecified "corrective action."
