Gov. Whitmer subpoenaed in abortion case
The defendants in a lawsuit over Michigan’s abortion ban are trying to subpoena the governor.
Attorney David Kallman represents some in the lawsuit. He says he wants to question Whitmer during a hearing over whether to continue blocking enforcement of the law.
“Since the governor is the sole plaintiff in this lawsuit against our clients, and she’s the one claiming she’s irreparably harmed, then she’s the one that has to prove that harm.”
Whitmer could fight the subpoena. Her communications staff did not respond to a request for comment in time for this story.
