(AP) SALT LAKE CITY - A Salt Lake City shopping mall is suing a Utah man charged with plotting a mass shooting there, claiming his threats brought the mall bad publicity and led workers and shoppers to fear for their safety.

Prosecutors say 42-year-old Jack Stiles planned to randomly shoot people at the City Creek Center this week, and planned to to fire at a movie theater and wire a bomb underneath a bus.

According to a lawsuit filed Wednesday, attorneys for City Creek are seeking at least $300,000 in damages and a court order barring Stiles from coming with 4,000 feet of the mall.

Messages left with Stiles' attorney were not immediately returned Friday.

Stiles is jailed on $1 million bail and has not yet entered a plea to the terrorism threat charges he faces.
