The FBI is investigating whether a self-described “anti-feminist” lawyer, suspected of killing the son of a federal judge, had previously murdered a fellow lawyer in California.
Roy Den Hollander, an attorney known for bringing lawsuits over perceived infringements of men’s rights, was found dead in the Catskills area of New York on Monday, a day after Daniel Anderl, the 20-year-old son of US district judge Esther Salas was shot and killed in New Jersey.
In 2015 she was the judge in a lawsuit filed by Den Hollander, which alleged a male-only military draft discriminated against both men and women.
In more than 2,000 pages of often misogynistic, racist writings, Den Hollander had criticized Salas’s life story of being abandoned by her father and raised by her poor mother as “the usual effort to blame a man and turn someone into super girl”.
Den Hollander filed multiple lawsuits challenging what he saw as unfair treatment of men. He had brought a series of unsuccessful lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of “ladies’ night” promotions at bars and nightclubs.
