In 2007, Kim Myung Ho’s rebuttal was denied without any reason. The angry professor visited the judge with a crossbow and demanded a fair trial. There was a physical altercation, the judge had a bloody shirt and there was also a broken arrow. However, the professor argued that he did not in fact shoot the judge which caused a controversial and interesting case.
