Gov. Palin's Trooper Troubles - UPDATE

Attorney General Talis Colberg’s motion to quash Legislative subpoenae was filed today. The motion and other relevant documents are available here:

The motion was prepared and will likely be argued by AAG Jan DeYoung, one of Alaska’s better, maybe best, civil side AAGs, so they’re taking this quite seriously. Fundamentally, they are challenging both the structure and the authority of the investigation and its investigator. Responses are due in twenty days. Interestingly, they could have sought an emergency hearing and order to speed up action and didn’t. You can draw your own conclusion from that.
