  • Nashville’s Covenant Presbyterian School, site of a March 27 mass shooting, has moved to intervene in a court case seeking the immediate release of the shooter’s manifesto.
  • School officials said they are trying to bar the release of “schematics of church facilities and confidential information pertaining to Covenant Church employees,” according to the suit.
  • “Star News Digital Media Inc. is not seeking the schematics of the school, nor are we asking for personnel information that would violate employee privacy expectations. We are seeking the relevant writings of a killer who shook the public’s sense of safety to its core,” said Michael Patrick Leahy, chief executive officer of Star News Digital Media, resident of Tennessee, and plaintiff in the lawsuit.
