An exasperated Municipal Court judge warned five anti-abortion activists Thursday that they would be held in contempt of court if they continued to use such terms as "killing centers" when referring to abortion clinics during their trial. "I'm putting each one of you on notice," Judge Richard A. Paez told the leaders of the anti-abortion group, Operation Rescue. "Any more questions that are inflammatory in nature . . . you're going to get yourselves in contempt."

OPINION
August 20, 1989
Judge Richard A. Paez deserves credit for sticking to the trespass issue in the Randall Terry trial (Aug. 10). Terry's God Squad tactics don't work for the judge any better than they do for women. Naturally, Terry screams violation of his constitutional rights, an odd charge for someone who, in repeatedly blocking women's access to medical care, violates constitutional rights for a living.
