Supreme Court rules against mystery corporation from ‘Country A’ fighting subpoena in Mueller investigation


The court dissolved a temporary stay that had been put in place by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. In a short order, it did not give a reason for the decision, nor did it note any dissents.

The entity that is the subject of the cloaked legal battle — known in court papers simply as a “Corporation” from “Country A” — is a foreign financial institution that was issued a subpoena by a grand jury hearing evidence in the special counsel investigation, according to two people familiar with the case.


Uh oh

Roberts order was actually pretty bland. He issued a temporary stay on the DC court order, invited the parties to make arguments as to why the stay should remain or not, and ultimately ruled the stay should not remain in place. 


But part of the analysis on whether there should be a stay in the order is whether the party wanting it is ultimately likely to succeed in the merits of the underlying case. So Roberts somewhat signaling what he thinks about the merits of the subpoena.
