Schwantz lawyer 'serves Dorna boss with subpoena'

19 April 2013

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."
