From The New York Times article:
"His wife spoke of collecting damages when this is over, but Mr. Shuler is thinking beyond civil remedies this time: He is planning to bring federal criminal charges against the judge.""I know of no provision under the law where any citizen can bring federal criminal charges against anyone else, much less a judge," Shuler said. "My understanding is that any citizen can contact the FBI about alleged criminal activity, and then it's up to the Bureau to take that claim to the appropriate U.S. Attorney. I have no means to bring criminal charges against anyone, and it baffles me how one of the world's foremost newspapers could make a statement that is so contrary to the facts."
