The woman who admitted shooting six coworkers at the University of Alabama in Huntsville could receive royalties from the university for an invention that's expected to start generating revenue soon.
Bishop and her husband, Jim Anderson, invented a cell incubator that has been developed for sale by InQ Biosciences. UAH owns the patent, but Bishop and Anderson are in line for part of the royalties.
UAH spokesman Ray Garner told The Huntsville Times (bit.ly/QRxLiB) that it's too soon to know if the university will be writing checks to Bishop and Anderson because they are being sued by some of the victims and their families.
Attorneys say that if the victims win those suits, they could go after any assets the couple has.
