Supreme Court halts contempt order against mystery company fighting subpoena

[CLI Code] CLI.N.16755150(EN) 

The Supreme Court is putting on hold a contempt order against an unnamed company fighting a subpoena in a mystery case with possible ties to special counsel Robert Mueller.
A lower court last week upheld the subpoena after the company, which is owned by a foreign government, argued that it was immune from criminal proceedings under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act and that the subpoena was unenforceable because it would require “the Corporation” to violate “Country A's” domestic law.
Chief Justice John Roberts on Sunday halted the contempt order against the company, which included a $5,000-a-week fine.
The case, which is a mystery because all of the names involved have been sealed against public view, has drawn widespread rumors that Mueller might be involved due to the secrecy and similarities to at least one other Mueller subpoena case.
