A March court date has been set for a lawyer accused of making bomb threats that forced the evacuation of the old Cuyahoga County Courthouse three years ago.

Gregory J. Moore was indicted on three felony counts of inducing panic. Prosecutors say in July of 2012 Moore placed calls to three employees of Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court, warning that a bomb would explode at 11:30 a.m. As a result, the courthouse on Lakeside Avenue was evacuated and thoroughly searched. No explosives were found.

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Moore, of Sagamore Hills, is an associate of the downtown Cleveland law firm of Stafford & Stafford, which specializes in domestic relations work. He was also representing Aliza Sherman when she was killed. Sherman stabbed 11 times after leaving Moore's office. She was in the midst of a long drawn out messy divorce that was finally set to go to trial. That case remains unsolved.
