The son of US District Court of New Jersey (3rd District) Judge Esther Salas has died after a gunman opened fire on her North Brunswick home. Salas' son was killed in the shooting and her husband was injured. Judge Salas was unharmed. The gunman appeared to be wearing a FedEx uniform, it is not yet known whether the gunman was a FedEx employee or someone posing to be an employee.

Federal court records show that Salas has presided over high-profiles cases, including the fraud case of Real Housewives. She also handled the 2018 sentencing of Farad Roland, who was found guilty of federal racketeering charges and sentenced to 45 years in prison by Salas. Roland was the leader of the South Side Cartel.

On Thursday, Salas was assigned to handle a class action lawsuit brought against Deutsche Bank alleging that the bank "failed to properly monitor customers that the Bank itself deemed to be high risk, including, among others, the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein," federal court records show.
