Libby Subpoenas Andrea Mitchell

The media has reported on some of the subpoenas Lewis "Scooter" Libby has issued to reporters and news agencies. Here's a list of those who are fighting them, and the federal docket numbers of the cases. In most cases, the recipients of the subpoenas generally were moving for more time to respond.

CASE #: 1:06-mc-00123-RBW: NBC NEWS & AFFILIATES
CASE #: 1:06-mc-00124-RBW: MATTHEW COOPER
CASE #: 1:06-mc-00125-RBW: JUDITH A. MILLER
CASE #: 1:06-mc-00126-RBW: ANDREA MITCHELL
CASE #: 1:06-mc-00127-RBW: TIM RUSSERT

The Court entered this order today (from the court's docket sheet):

ORDER directing movant served with a Rule 17© subpoena pursuant to the Order of February 27, 2006 shall produce the designated items on April 18, 2006. It is further ordered that any movant seeking to quash or modify subpoena issued pursuant to order of February 27, 2006, must file a motion to quash or modify subpoena by April 18, 2006. Any opposition shall be filed by April 25, 2006 and reply thereto shall be filed by May 1, 2006. It is further ordered that the movants shall file a consolidated motion to quash or modify and the defendant shall file a consolidated opposition. It is further ordered that this Court will hear argument on any motion to quash or modify filed by Movant on May 5, 2006 at 1:30pm.

These documents are available through Pacer to those with accounts. Pacer charges by the page for them. As it gets closer to April 18, I'll start monitoring the docket sheets for motions to quash the subpoenas.

    Let the games begin. Between this Abramhof, delay, Coin Gate and more to come the repuglican culture of corruption Congress is going to get a lot of Negative P.R. between now and Nov, 06. With all the so called Democratic "weaknesses" I think doing and saying nothing while the Repigs self destruct may actually end up being the best stratigy! So let us sit back and enjoy watching all the shoes drop like a summer thunder shower.
