Judge John McCarthy Roll shot in Arizona faced death threats circa 2009Submitted by Aussie on Sat, 01/08/2011 - 21:54
"In 2009, Roll ruled that the case Vicente v. Barnett could go forward. The $32 lawsuit brought by MALDEF against Arizona rancher Roger Barnett on behalf of 16 Mexican plaintiffs charged that the plaintiffs were assaulted, threatened, and held at gunpoint by Barnett and members of his family. After Roll's ruling and prompted by several talk-radio programs, he was the subject of hundreds of complaining phone calls and death threats and he and his family were under the protection of the U.S. Marshalls Service for a month."
