Judge considers gag order in Bishop civil cases

The judge presiding over the civil cases against UA Huntsville shooting suspect Amy Bishop Anderson is considering a gag order.

Court documents show that Amy Bishop Anderson filed the motion for the gag order, citing the gag order in the criminal case issued by Madison County Circuit Judge Alan Mann.

Bishop Anderson is accused of shooting 6 people during a staff meeting at the Shelby Center on the UA Huntsville Campus in February of 2010. Three of the victims died.

Bishop Anderson and her husband James Anderson are named in four civil lawsuits filed by family members of those killed and survivors of the shooting.

Court documents show a motion for a Restraining Order Concerning Extrajudicial Statements has been filed in the cases involving Stephanie Monticciolo, Dr. Joseph Leahy, Dr. Maria Ragland Davis, and Dr. Adriel Johnson.

Bishop Anderson faces one count of capital murder and three counts of attempted murder. A trial date has not been set.
