The acting administrative director of the New Jersey Courts says that his office is working closely with law enforcement to safeguard state judges following the murder of a federal judge’s son at their family home on Sunday evening.
Judge Glenn A. Grant says the courts have an “ongoing collaboration and partnership with the State Police, who have court security unit for our judiciary members.”
“We also work collaboratively with our county sheriffs,” Grant said. “And we’ve engaged in ongoing conversations with each element of our law enforcement partners to ensure that we’re focusing on the safety and well-being of our judges.”
Daniel Anderl, the 20-year-old son of U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas, was killed by the gunman, now identified as anti-feminist lawyer Roy Den Hollander. Hollander committed suicide after the shooting, federal officials said.
The judge’s husband, Mark Anderl, was critically wounded after being shot in the stomach and arm. He is in stable condition at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick after multiple surgeries.
