Alabama News Network has learned the scheduled Montgomery showing of a documentary about the prosecution and jailing of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman has been canceled.

Our sources say the non-profit Capri Theater’s board of directors believes the film defames a member of their board, Leura Canary, who was U.S. attorney when Siegelman was put on trial and convicted.

The documentary “Atticus v The Architect” was set for a June 8th afternoon showing. A group of Montgomery lawyers had paid to rent the theater for the showing on Saturday July 8th. No immediate comment from those lawyers.
