Chuck Weller, Senior Judge, Washoe County

"It hurts the judicial system not only because somebody’s been physically injured, but because it takes the attention of judges away from what they’re supposed to be doing."

- Chuck Weller, Senior Judge, Washoe County, says one of the problems with attacks against the court is that it affects everyone involved – from the judge and their family to all judiciaries. After a recent violent attack against a Clark County judge, he shares his own story of being shot during a contentious divorce case in 2006 and explains what judges can do to keep safe and appraise the danger they might be in.
