Emily Lyons Sues Bombing Suspect Rudolph

Emily Lyons, the nurse who was seriously injured in the 1998 Birmingham abortion clinic bombing, is suing bomb suspect Eric Robert Rudolph. The suit is intended to prevent Rudolph from receiving any profits from a book or movie.

Lyons is also seeking damages in her suit against Rudolph, which she filed on Thursday. Rudolph is charged with the January 1998 bombing of the New Woman All Women Health Care clinic that injured Lyons and killed an off-duty police officer.

Rudolph is also charged with the 1996 Olympic Park bombing and the bombing of a lesbian and gay nightclub in Atlanta.

The FBI has placed Rudolph on their 10 most-wanted list and continue to search for him in the rural North Carolina mountains near his home.
