A federal judge overseeing the Oklahoma City bombing case in Denver issued a gag order barring attorneys from making comments or releasing information that might interfere with a fair trial. But U.S. District Judge Richard P. Matsch stopped short of ordering an investigation into alleged leaks to the press of critical evidence and confidential information in the case. Timothy J. McVeigh and his Army friend, Terry L. Nichols, are awaiting trial for the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building last year that claimed 168 lives.
