In Georgia, U.S. District Judge Orinda D. Evans received a fake mail bomb in a parcel that apparently eluded courthouse security. The parcel came from a man she sentenced in a similar case. Although incoming mail is supposed to go through a magnetometer, the brown envelope identified as “Legal Mail” delivered to Evans’ chambers at the federal courthouse on Monday apparently did not go through the court security officer’s machine. The package contained double-A batteries, wire and the vertical part of an asthma inhaler. Three stories of the Atlanta courthouse was evacuated after a secretary opened the package and alerted the U.S. Marshals Service. The FBI traced and identified the suspect who later confessed. In 1989, mail bombs killed Judge Robert Vance of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Savannah civil rights lawyer Robbie Robinson.
