In January 2010, troubled biology researcher and professor Amy Bishop opened fire on several of her colleagues at a departmental staff meeting at the University of Alabama-Huntsville. Bishop was subsequently indicted on criminal charges in the case, but several of the families of the victims who were killed in the rampage have recently filed wrongful death suits. The suits claim that the university, certain administrative officials, and even Bishop’s husband failed to intervene when Bishop’s pattern of behavior indicated that a violent outburst could be imminent. Financial details of the suits have not yet been released.
