How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Judge Orders Dick Cheney to Give Deposition in Lawsuit Against Secret Service Agents

Just when you thought ex-V.P. Dick Cheney had rode off into the sunset, never to be heard again. Now he’s going to have to testify in a case. Some how you get the feeling he’s probably not too thrilled about this.

By KIRK JOHNSON
NEW York Times
DENVER – Former Vice President Dick Cheney will have to give his account – under oath, in a legal deposition – of what happened at a Colorado ski resort in June 2006 when a man stepped up to protest the Iraq war and was arrested, a federal district judge ruled Monday.

The protester, Steven Howards, sued five Secret Service agents in Mr. Cheney’s security detail after the encounter at the Beaver Creek resort. Mr. Howards’s lawyers have argued that Mr. Cheney’s version of events is crucial to getting at the truth.

Mr. Cheney’s lawyers had responded – successfully until Monday’s ruling by Judge Christine M. Arguello in Denver – that a deposition was unnecessary. A federal magistrate agreed with Mr. Cheney last April; Judge Arguello’s ruling reversed that decision.
