NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — A federal judge from New Jersey is publicly speaking out about a shooting at her home last month when authorities say a misogynistic lawyer killed her son, who she said sought to protect his father who was seriously wounded in the ambush.
In a video statement issued Monday, Judge Esther Salas called for more privacy for federal judges in the wake of the July 19 attack at her home in New Brunswick.
She noted that serving as judge involves “making tough calls” that sometimes leave people angry and upset.
But she said judges should not have to “live in fear for our lives” because personal information, such as home addresses, can be easily obtained by anyone seeking to cause them or their families harm.
