1. Have a System in Place - Courts and court systems should have a system in place for dealing

with threats against court personnel and clerks. Such personnel should know the system, be aware of who

to contact, and know what constitutes a "threat" within the definition of that system. ALL threats should be

reported up the chain of command and to local law enforcement. The threat of violence, a la the

Oklahoma City bombing, is real enough that all such threats should be investigated.

2. Ensure Personnel are Trained - Court personnel should be trained to recognize the specific

actions and arguments that members of the movement make. Generally, this includes what the liens they file

look like, their "UCC - without recourse" argument, the types of actions they file against public officials, etc.

Court personnel should also have some idea of what constitutes a "threat" and what, generally, the law can do

about such threats.

3. Do Not Engage the Party - As always when dealing with extremists, the court personnel

should be careful not to make a potentially bad situation worse. While it is difficult to stay calm in the face

of threats, it is important that personnel avoid engaging in a debate or argument with members of

the movement. Calmness and courtesy are the most likely responses to cause de-escalation of a tense

situation, and this is no less likely here. Following threats, court personnel should engage the system,

report the threat to higher ups and to law enforcement, and deal with the situation as calmly as possible.

4. ALWAYS Inform Law Enforcement or Court Security - Again, given the significant

potential for violence by members of the movement, it is important that threats against court personnel be

dealt with swiftly and severely. Such response discourages not only the specific individual from

further threats, but also the movement in general from doing so. Most jurisdictions will have some sort of

statute dealing specifically with attempts to intimidate court personnel, and all will have some sort of general

assault statute. Reporting threats to the police also has the benefit of making other branches aware of the

operation of the movement in the area.
