Judge says attacker made dossier on SotomayorA federal judge whose son was killed and husband was wounded in an attack on their home last year says the assailant was also planning to target Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas told 60 Minutes in an interview that will air Sunday that authorities found a dossier on Sotomayor in a locker used by the assailant, Roy Den Hollander.

"They found another gun, a Glock, more ammunition," Salas told the CBS News program. "But the most troubling thing they found was a manila folder with a workup on Justice Sonia Sotomayor."

Den Hollander showed up in July at the New Jersey home of Salas, who had presided over one of his many lawsuits fighting what he perceived as feminist oppression.

Dressed as a deliveryman, he allegedly killed Salas’ 20-year-old son, Daniel Anderl, and wounded her husband, attorney Mark Anderl.
