The State

September 14, 1986

A death threat prompted state Supreme Court Chief Justice Rose Bird to cancel a speech and swearing-in ceremony at the California Women Lawyers meeting in Monterey, but a spokesman said she plans to go ahead with her annual State of the Judiciary speech today at a meeting of the State Bar. State police advised Bird to "curtail her activities as much as possible" after a man, describing himself as a Vietnam veteran and sharpshooter, threatened Bird's life, according to Bird spokesman Steve Glazer. Associate Justice Cruz Reynoso, who handled the swearing-in ceremonies for Bird, said the controversial jurist has received many death threats in the past.
