Nashville school shooting families accuse senator of using bill to get his way in records lawsuit

Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Family members representing the six people killed in a Nashville school shooting last year have filed an ethics complaint against a Tennessee state senator. They claim a bill sponsored by Sen. Todd Gardenhire that would prevent people like them from intervening in public records disputes is self-serving. That’s because he is currently involved in a lawsuit seeking the release of the Covenant School shooter’s writings. In that case, a group of parents from the Covenant School who want the records kept secret was allowed to intervene. A hearing in the records case is scheduled to begin on Tuesday.
