    The FBI has turned over Nashville Tennessee Covenant School mass shooter Audrey Hale’s private writing and manifesto to a federal judge who will read them privately and decide how to deal with their release. 

    Star News Digital Media Inc., The Tennessee Star’s parent company, sued the FBI in May 2023 after the March 2023 shooting. The news organization had claimed the FBI had violated the First Amendment by rejecting multiple Freedom of Information Act requests for Hale’s manifesto.

    U.S. District Court Judge Aleta A. Trauger, who has presided over the case agreed with the Tennessee Star over a month ago that it was in the public's interest to release the documents to determine what the motive of the mass shooting was. 

    Hale killed three nine-year old children and three faculty members during her mass shooting spree before she was shot dead by law enforcement on the scene inside the school. 

    Trauger will review the documents privately, before deciding whether to share the writings with the plaintiffs.

    “Pursuant to this Court’s Order dated March 15, 2024, ECF No. 42, the FBI notifies the Court that today, April 17, 2024, the FBI provided the requested records to the Court for its ex parte, in camera review,” the FBI said in its formal notification.

    Trauger previously said that there was “significant public interest” in the shooter’s manifesto, when a few pages were leaked by conservative commentator Steven Crowder last November. 

    Those leaked pages revealed anti-white writings. 

    Hale was transgender and signed the pages with his new name “Aidan.” Hale's parents have stated publicly that Hale had been on medications. 

    Attorney Daniel Lennington, who represents Star News Digital Media, said that the judge’s ruling last month was a “promising development.” 

    “Someone is finally holding the FBI accountable for its handling of the manifesto,” Lennington said at the time. “The people have a right to know what motivated the Nashville Shooter, and we are steps closer to finding out more information.”
