Nashville attorney Bob DeLaney has told WKRN News 2 that General Sessions Judge Casey Moreland has asked him to look at the possibility of filing a libel lawsuit against Metro Police Chief Steve Anderson. Word of a potential suit comes after a “blistering” public letter from Anderson to Bill Higgins, the presiding judge of Metro Nashville's General Sessions, about Judge Moreland's decision to waive the “cooling off period” in a domestic abuse case. Meanwhile, Fox 17 reports that Moreland recently broke his silence in the case, having an employee read a statement in court last week in which he “took responsibility for what he called a bad decision” and pledged to work hard to restore his reputation.
