Cheney's attorneys trying to prevent VP from testifying in lawsuit
Associated Press - January 25, 2008 9:14 PM ET

DENVER (AP) - Dick Cheney's attorneys want to stop an attempt to force him to testify in a lawsuit where a man claims he was arrested after telling the vice president his policies in Iraq were "disgusting."

Cheney is not a defendant in the lawsuit against five Secret Service agents but attorney David Lane says he's the best eyewitness in his client's case. Cheney's attorneys filed a motion today in federal court opposing Lane's request to subpoena him.

Fifty-5-year-old Steve Howards is suing the secret service agents, claiming they violated his First Amendment right to free speech and his Fourth Amendment protection from unreasonable search and seizure.

Howards says he "lightly touched" Cheney after he delivered the comment in 2006 at a mall in Beaver Creek. The Secret Service agents accused Howards of assaulting Cheney.

2. Cheney Terrified Of Being Under Oath?
Or terrified of the the defendent? Or just too high and mighty to do anything human?

Or terrified of the law in any manifestation?

6. They don't want him to have to touch the Bilble or swear an oath.
other wise if he doesn't have to tell the truth, he might appear. If he can find a baby sitter since KKKarls not around.

10. I don't know what their grounds are
After all, the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that a sitting president would not be inconvenienced by proceeding with a civil lawsuit against him. Hard to figure how Cheney would be so inconvenienced merely by having to have his deposition taken. Unless, of course, this is another one of those everythings that 9/11 changed.
