64 year old Bruce Richard Senator,, was arrested in September 2006 after authorities read transcripts of emails and signed court affidavits where he complained that a wide conspiracy among judges and other government employees resulted in his workers compensation benefits being denied.

“I acquiesce to the use of force to punish the state of California for engaging in atrocities, violence and terrorism,: Senator wrote in one affidavit signed on July 4, 2006. … “The game is over. You lose.”

Deputy District Attorney Andre Manssourian argued that workers compensation judges William Whitely and Norman Delaterre – who handled Senator’s workers’ compensation case at one time or another – felt personally threatened by Senator and suffered “sustained fear.”

The Stanton California resident, who served as his own attorney during a two-week criminal jury trial in 2007, was convicted.

He fought that conviction, and the subsequent incarceration through the court system at least up until July 2017, when the federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeal denied his appeal of the denial of his Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus.

In a 2013 Order to Show Cause RE: Vexatious Litigant, it was alleged that he had initiated approximately 26 civil actions in the Central District of California since 1999. “None of these actions has resulted in a judgment favorable to plaintiff. Moreover, many of them were dismissed as patently frivolous or for failure to state a claim.”

He has now again been accused of threatening five Orange County Superior Court judges. He pleaded not guilty to the charges last week in Orange County Superior court.

The nature of how the alleged threat was conveyed was not immediately known.
