Judge Alan Mann has sealed the court files in the Amy Bishop Anderson murder trial.

Bishop is accused of shooting six colleagues during a Biology department meeting at University of Alabama Huntsville, killing three.

An attorney with the case confirmed that the judge sealed the documents. This means that the public will not have access to information regarding the case.

A judge already issued a gag order in the case shortly after the February, 2010 shooting. The gag order prevents anyone associated with the case from talking to the media, but it does not prevent media coverage.

Prosecutors said they plan to seek the death penalty in this case.
