Former Professor Attacks Judge with Crossbow

Crossbow Crossbow Attack Shocks Judiciary:

A former professor's attack on a judge with a crossbow Monday sent shock waves through judicial circles and prompted calls for measures to safeguard the safety of judges. Police yesterday sought an arrest warrant for the attacker, Kim Myung-ho, on charges of attempted homicide. The 50-year-old former mathematics professor at Sungkyunkwan University shot Park Hong-woo, a 55-year-old Seoul High Court judge, in the stomach with a crossbow as payback for his loss of a legal dispute in an appellate court chaired by Park. ...

Kim appealed a lawsuit in 2005, in which he demanded reinstatement of his professorship after asserting that he was unfairly dismissed in 1996.
