HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Attorneys representing the families of those killed in a shooting rampage last year at an Alabama university say they are suing a school official.

The lawsuits seek to hold the University of Alabama-Huntsville's provost responsible for failing to abide by regulations that the families say would have prevented the shootings.

Authorities say biology professor killed three colleagues and wounded three others in February 2010 during a staff meeting. Bishop has been charged with capital murder in the shootings.

The families of two of those killed, Maria Ragland Davis and Adriel D. Johnson Sr., filed the lawsuits.

Bishop and her husband, James Anderson, also are defendants in the lawsuit.
