Judge orders Michael Gill to remove public statements accusing attorney of attempted murder
MANCHESTER — A judge has ordered a mortgage broker to remove any public statements accusing an attorney of attempted murder from electronic business signs outside his business offices.
According to the Union Leader, Superior Court Judge N. William Delker issued a permanent injunction April 10, prohibiting Michael Gill from making further statements, in any form, claiming attorney Alex Walker committed attempted murder.
Delker also ordered Gill to remove any previous attempted murder references to Walker posted on the Mortgage Specialists Inc. signs outside his offices in Manchester and Nashua.
Delker’s order followed another ruling he made March 30 finding against Gill in a defamation lawsuit Walker, an executive at Catholic Medical Center and prominent attorney in the community, filed last April after his name and photo appeared on Gill’s Mortgage Specialists’ billboard next to the words “Attempted Murder.”
Gill claimed that Walker hired someone to assassinate him while on a business trip, hence the words "Attempted Murder." Meanwhile, Walker claimed, "I have never attempted to murder anyone, including Michael Gill," in his deposition.
