CNN Reporter Fights Lindh Trial Subpoena

July 06, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A Cable News Network reporter asked a federal judge to reject a subpoena from American Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh that seeks his testimony at Lindh's trial.

The request was filed by attorneys for Robert Pelton, who interviewed Lindh in Afghanistan.

Pelton's lawyers said requiring him to testify would intrude on his "safety and rights independently to gather news."
