HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Attorneys for the families of two UAH shooting victims filed a new subpoena for records concerning security records at the university.

The families of Dr. Marie Ragland Davis and Dr. Adriel Johnson filed a civil lawsuit against Amy Bishop Anderson, her husband James Anderson, and the UAH Provost Dr. Vistasp Karbhari.

The family initially requested electronic and phone information from October 2009 until February 11, 2010. UAH officials told attorneys that would cost anywhere from $1-million to $6-million dollars. Attorneys for the plaintiffs told a judge they felt UAH was trying to price the family out of litigation. The judge gave attorneys 30 days to come back with what they think is a reasonable price.

The plaintiffs have since amended the subpoena to include the following:

  • Requests for security or police originating from Shelbie King Hall between November 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009
  • Requests for security or police services from the offices of Dr. Vistasp Karbhari, then-President David Williams, and their respective staff from November 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009.
  • Records of security detail at Shelbie King Hall between November 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009
  • Incoming and outgoing call records from November 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009 for phone numbers used by Dr. Karbhari, David Williams members of their respective staff, and Dr. Debra Moriarity.
  • E-mail and other electronic communications concerning Amy Bishop Anderson from November 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009 for accounts belonging to Dr. Karbhari, David Williams, their respective staff, and Dr. Moriarity.
  • All records indicating any call from the Office of the Provost or the Office of the President in Shelbie King Hall to any University Police number from November 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.

UAH officials have 15 days to send the documents or allow the families' attorneys to inspect the documents. Court records show the subpoena was served February 13, 2013.
