Which judge is a judge?

Judge Brian A. Murphy of New York is the current judge in a class action lawsuit alleging that the New York Times violated its duty to disclose certain confidential information about an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct.

Murphy, a retired New York City judge, has argued that the Times’ decision to disclose information about the investigation to The Associated Press is a violation of the Freedom of Information Act.

Murphy’s office is appealing the court’s order.

A federal appeals court in New York last year declined to review Murphy’s lawsuit, and the appeals court is expected to issue a decision this month.
