Hancock attorneys to file documents under seal

From The Trussville Tribune staff reports

BIRMINGHAM — A judge has granted a motion for leave to file documents under seal in the Cracker Barrel shooting case, meaning some motions in the case will be filed without public access.

Attorneys for Bryan Hancock, the man charged with capital murder, said the move is not uncommon to seal some motions that are filed in which the motion discloses theories of the case.

The move should not impact public access of the case, because very few motions will be sealed.
