7 state employees to submit to subpoenas after all

Attorney General Talis Colberg this weekend said that all seven state employees who were subpoenaed by the Senate Judiciary Committee will give depositions to the investigator looking into the firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan. They had withheld their testimony in the inquiry until  a court ruled on the validity of the subpoenas – which has now been completed. Although an appeal by some plaintiff’s to the Alaska Supreme Court will be taken up Wednesday,  Senator Hollis French says the seven state workers will be allowed to give written statements under oath to help speed up the process.
