Swedish Style

Does anybody else get Starr/Clinton/Lewinsky flashback syndrome when they read stories like this one?

An appeal court judge from Malmö who admitted visiting a brothel has got his job back after he sued his employer. Malmö district court ruled that the judge had not committed a crime, because he did not actually pay for sex.

Dan Ogvall, one of the three judges who heard his case, told Expressen that the appeal court judge had "done nothing except for masturbating while a girl was next to him." This does not count as sexual relations in Swedish law, according to the court, so the judge could not be guilty of paying for sex, it ruled.
[...] He was awarded retroactive salary from September 2005.
