JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Stoddard County attorney is trying to depose Gov. Jay Nixon and senior Revenue Department officials in a lawsuit involving the state's new driver's license procedures.
Attorney Russ Oliver says he issued a subpoena to appear for a deposition because he thinks Nixon has knowledge about the case. He expects the subpoena to be delivered Tuesday. It orders Nixon to appear on May 3.
A Nixon spokesman had no immediate comment.
Oliver is representing Eric Griffin, of Advance, in a lawsuit challenging new requirements for license clerks to scan personal documents, such as birth certificates and concealed weapons endorsements.
A judge in the case already denied an injunction request to force the department to stop scanning documents.
Nixon announced earlier this month that weapons endorsements would no longer be scanned.
