Appeals Court to look at Virginia Briard subpoenas

Email News Alerts

A district judge has agreed to ask a Minnesota Appeals Court for guidance on the issue of whether subpoenas were properly served in the Virginia Briard case.


District Judge Lisa Borgen ruled in June that the subpoenas had been properly served, even though they had been delivered to her husband and son.

Virginia Briard is accused of going on the run to avoid testifying at the first trial of her husband, Robert. The Briards own a well-known hog farming operation near Frazee.
