The district attorney prosecuting accused courthouse shooter Brian G. Nichols has asked the Georgia Supreme Court to order Judge Hilton M. Fuller Jr. off the case. Fulton County DA Paul L. Howard Jr. said that Fuller exceeded his authority in several respects, in particular with regard to funding issues in the case, and that Fuller's recusal from one funding motion should act as a recusal from the entire case. Howard's filing came at the end of a week where Fuller came under increasing fire.
