Judge denies defense subpoena request in Palin e-mail case

A U.S. District Judge last week denied a request by alleged e-mail identity thief David Kernell to subpoena all of Sarah Palin’s emails. Magistrate C. Clifford Shirley, Jr., after examining the government's case against Kernell and Kernell’s defense, ruled that the subpoenas being sought by Kernell's defense team, with one exception, were not relevant to the case. Kernell, the son of longtime Tennessee state Rep. Mike Kernell (D-Memphis), was indicted in October, 2008 for unauthorized access and identity theft which was allegedly committed on September 16, 2008. Former Gov. Palin is expected to testify as a witness in the case.
