Death Threats Against U.S. Supreme Court Justices

The beSpacific website points this week to a number of news items concerning threats to U.S. Supreme Court judges that appear to be related to debates over Congressional bills that would prohibit U.S. federal courts from referring to foreign laws or rulings when interpreting the U.S. Constitution.

The debate seems to have encouraged often heated criticisms of the U.S. federal judiciary, both from Republican leaders and from "fringe" groups.

beSpacific also links to reports in the news that a majority of U.S. federal judges have asked for government-paid home protection systems because of concerns over their physicial safety and that of their family members.
