DENVER (AP) - Anti-tax activist Douglas Bruce was in court Tuesday to fight a subpoena as a spokesman for Colorado Attorney General John Suthers announced that Bruce was finally served with another subpoena after more than 30 attempts.
Bruce was in court Tuesday fighting a subpoena ordering him to appear before a grand jury in an unrelated case, but Suthers spokesman Mike Saccone said he didn't know when or where process servers found Bruce. Denver District Court Judge Brian Whitney ruled there is evidence that Bruce flouted the law. He ordered Bruce to show up July 26 for a hearing.
Bruce said he was never properly served. A spokeswoman for the Denver district attorney's office said Bruce was ordered to show up Wednesday to testify before a grand
jury. She said the grand jury proceedings are secret and she refused to disclose why Bruce was called to testify.
