The legal dispute between Kevin Schwantz and the Circuit of the Americas, hosting its inaugural MotoGP event this weekend, appears to have ramped up a notch.

The 1993 world champion, who has issued a lawsuit against COTA over promotion rights for the MotoGP event, has posted this message on his official Facebook page:

"I just received word from my attorney, Austin Tighe: I want to let you know that earlier this morning, over what I am told was a delicious Four Seasons' breakfast, Carmelo Ezpeleta was served with a subpoena to appear for deposition [sworn testimony] in Austin on May 8 at 9:00 a.m."
