"She has received a lot of threats before and unfortunately after the election," said Bird's executive assistant, Stephen T. Buehl.

These are unusually demanding times for Justice Cruz Reynoso of the California Supreme Court. Facing strong opposition in the fall election, he finds himself in a role rarely played by a judge: appealing for votes in 30-second television commercials, answering questions before newspaper editorial boards, appearing on radio talk shows and making campaign speeches throughout the state.
