In the 1980’s in Sydney Australia, Justice David Opas was shot dead outside his home and bombs were exploded at the homes of Justice Richard Gee and Justice Ray Watson. All three were Family Law Court judges.

After these attacks, the Parramatta Family Law Court building was bombed and there was an attempted assassination of Family Law Court solicitor Gary Watts.
