The circus continues: Murderer Brian Nichols is suing, saying he can't receive a fair trial in Georgia state courts.

From the AJC:

Accused Fulton County courthouse killer Brian Nichols is suing . . . to block further disclosure of records related to funding his defense.

Nichols' lawyers said in the suit filed in Fulton County Superior Court on Friday that Nichols can't receive a fair trial in Georgia state courts for the March 11, 2005, shootings because of defense funding records that have already been released.

The items [the current judge] previously released primarily were invoices for lodging for Nichols' out-of-state attorneys. The judge stayed his recent order regarding further disclosure to allow the defense time to appeal his decision.

As of the end of June 2007, when the state public defender's office cut off funding to Nichols' lawyers, Nichols' defense had cost the office $1.8 million.
