Judge Shot in Reno

Judge Chuck Weller, a family court judge in Reno, NV, was shot in the chest while standing by a window in the courthouse earlier today. He’s been taken to the hospital; no word on his current condition. Wonder if he’s one of those nasty activist judges we hear so much about—that, in fact, our president was just bemoaning recently during his ringing endorsement of the federal marriage amendment.

I looked him up, but couldn’t find much about him. He’s on some (seemingly conservative) bad judges lists, but not because he appears to be liberal; it looks to be one of those “he’s not conservative enough” things. I also found some very angry fathers’ rights advocates who were complaining that he ran on a platform promising to uphold fathers’ rights, but has let them down.
