Bribery case brings Minor back to court

By The Associated Press

JACKSON – Imprisoned former attorney Paul Minor was back in federal court Tuesday, where he asked a judge to approve subpoenas he hopes will help his case during a re-sentencing hearing next week.
Minor and former Harrison County judges Wes Teel and John Whitfield were convicted of corruption in 2007. But they are scheduled to be re-sentenced next Thursday because a federal appeals court tossed some of their convictions.
Minor appeared to be in relatively good spirits, talking and laughing with his attorneys in breaks during the hearing in U.S. District Court in Jackson.
The hearing was called because an insurance company wants the judge to quash subpoenas Minor issued.
U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate said he would rule later.
