Gag order placed on Bucher documents

A federal district court judge Friday issued a gag order relating to certain documents entered into evidence in the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by Glenna McKitterick against former Branson priest Philip Bucher.
In the documents filed in U. S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri, Judge Richard E. Dorr wrote, "The parties, including their counsel, shall not give, show or otherwise divulge any documents, other materials or information, or any copies, prints, negatives or summaries thereof, or the contents thereof, produced in this action by defendants and marked as confidential, to any entity or person except their employees, experts and consultants employed and retained by them or their counsel in connection with the specific action."
All of those people will also be covered by the order, the document said, and the order will extend even after the case has concluded.
More information about the case can be found in earlier Turner Report postings.
