Judge Testifies He Felt Threatened by NJ Blogger

A federal appeals court judge from Illinois testified that he felt threatened by a New Jersey blogger’s inflammatory Internet tirades over a ruling supporting gun control.

The rant against a three-judge panel in Chicago “was a threat of violence,” Judge William Bauer told jurors at a trial in Brooklyn. “It suggested that the country would be better off if we were killed.”

The death threat case against Hal Turner stems from the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in 2009 by Bauer and two other judges, Frank Easterbrook and Richard Posner, that upheld a district court decision dismissing lawsuits that challenged handgun bans in Chicago and Oak Park, Ill.
