Judge rejects NIC subpoenas

Also declines attorney's motion to withdraw

A judge declined to hear an attorney's motion to request to withdraw from representing North Idaho College in a lawsuit filed against the college by President Nick Swayne. The judge also quashed subpoenas issued to two former trustees and the college’s former legal counsel. Boise-based attorney Bret Walther, who was assigned to the case by NIC’s insurance carrier, filed the motion to withdraw Monday afternoon, citing “irreconcilable breakdown of the attorney-client relationship.”

Former NIC trustees, lawyer seek to quash subpoenas

North Idaho College’s former attorney and two former trustees have asked a court to quash subpoenas seeking documents, emails, public record requests and other digital records related to the hiring of NIC President Nick Swayne, calling the subpoenas “unreasonable and oppressive.” Attorney Art Macomber issued a flurry of subpoenas last month on behalf of NIC in a lawsuit filed by Swayne against the college. The lawsuit seeks Swayne’s reinstatement after trustees placed him on administrative leave for no disciplinary reason.
