Reader searches spiked over the weekend for Elizabeth Scherer, the Broward Circuit judge overseeing the case of a Florida teenager accused of committing one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history.

Scherer is presiding over the case of Nikolas Cruz, who faces 17 counts of premeditated murder for the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The case could become a matter of life or death for Cruz if prosecutors opt to pursue the death penalty. It has already sparked a political debate about gun control, premises liability and the death penalty.
