Women's groups have called for the resignation of a senior New Zealand judge after he admitted viewing adult movies online.

Justice Robert Fisher admitted that he accessed the X-rated material some 15 months ago using this computer at work but maintains that what he did wasn't illegal.

The high court judge has apologised for what he did and said it won't happen again.

However, that has failed to silence critics who claim that the judge's credibility has been damaged and that he must go.

A spokeswoman for the Wellington Women's Refuge told Newsroom New Zealand that it would be inappropriate to have a judge with "pro-pornography views" presiding over cases such as rape.

And in a new twist it's been revealed that following an internal investigation three district court judges have also been fingered for visiting adult movie sites.

Further investigations are currently underway to find out exactly what's been going on. ®
