UAH shooting

The Alabama Supreme Court has refused to review an appeals court's decision upholding the conviction of a former university professor who pleaded guilty to killing three colleagues and wounding three more during a faculty meeting.

Former biology professor Amy Bishop Anderson has been appealing her conviction on one count of capital murder involving two or more people and three counts of attempted murder for the shooting at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2010.

Former university professor Amy Bishop is asking a judge in Huntsville to delay action in lawsuits against her.

The two suits were filed by victims of a 2010 shooting spree at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Bishop pleaded guilty to the crime.

Bishop maintains that information in the lawsuits could jeopardize her appeal in her criminal case.

A court had stopped action in the lawsuits while Bishop was awaiting trial. Attorneys were allowed to resume gathering evidence when she pleaded guilty to murder.

Court-appointed lawyers who represented Amy Bishop before she pleaded guilty to shooting six colleagues at the University of Alabama in Huntsville are getting more than $550,000 from the state for their work.

Circuit Judge Alan Mann has approved payments for two of the three attorneys who represented Bishop in the 2010 mass shooting.

Mann on Tuesday ordered a payment of $452,681 for Barry Abston. Mann earlier ruled that Roy Miller would get $100,426.
