I called Hizzoner Larry Burns’ chambers to learn what happened in the case of the subpoena that wasn’t.
Attorneys for convicted Cunningham briber Brent Wilkes, were chomping at the bit to serve me with my subpoena. Burns had been leaning toward issuing the subpoenas, and, on Friday, Burns told Wilkes’ attorneys to go ahead and serve them.
Only problem with this was Burns was still mulling over the request for subpoenas.
On Monday, when the judge finished his research and issued his order denying the request for subpoenas that had been issued, Burns had a change of heart. There would be no subpoenas. Oops!
So I’m left with a worthless piece of paper, a nice souvenir I’m going to hang on the wall.
