A woman has been arrested for repeatedly harassing and threatening New York Supreme Court Justice Jeffrey Sunshine, the Brooklyn judge presiding over her divorce proceeding. According to court records, Sunshine initiated the action against Cheryl Uzamere after she left 10 voice messages and sent three faxes to his chambers, containing such threats as “You’re going to pay for what you’ve done” and that “the battle was to the death.”

The judge appears to have filed the complaint shortly after Uzamere called the Inspector General’s Office of New York County and said she “was going to put on a disguise and shoot [Justice Sunshine] in the head.”
