SR To File Motion To Quash Subpoena

This week, The Spokesman-Review, through attorney Duane Swinton of Witherspoon-Kelley, will file a motion to quash the subpoena filed against the newspaper on behalf of Kootenai County GOP Central Committee Chairwoman Tina Jacobson (pictured). Jacobson is attempting to gain the identity of 3 anonymous individuals who posted on a Feb. 14 comments thread: Almost Innocent Bystander, Phaedrus and Out of Stater Tater. Jacobson has filed a lawsuit against "John and/or Jane Doe" alleging Almost Innocent Bystander libeled her in a post on Huckleberries Online. According to the lawsuit filed by Jacobson's attorney, Winston & Cashatt, "The entry as published via the internet stated there was $10,000 missing from the Republican Central Committee funds and that the missing funds were hidden on the person of Mrs. Jacobson." The lawsuit denounces both claims as false. Jacobson's attorneys have asked that the identities of the three named posters and other documentation be made available to Winston & Cashatt, 250 Northwest Boulevard/CdA, by 10 o'clock Friday morning.
