PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A judge has quashed a subpoena that sought Gov. Kate Brown’s testimony at Oregon standoff defendant Ryan Bundy’s criminal trial in September.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://goo.gl/rYaicl ) U.S. District Court Judge Anna J. Brown, who is not related to the governor, said Bundy has not demonstrated that the governor has any personal knowledge of the law enforcement response to refuge events that is not available from other sources.

Ryan Bundy issued the subpoena Tuesday for Brown to appear at trial and produce any emails between her and law enforcement agencies regarding the 41-day refuge occupation that weren’t already turned over to prosecutors.

The governor’s attorney argued she has no information pertinent to Bundy’s guilty or innocence in the case.

Bundy and others are charged with conspiring to impede federal employees at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge through intimidation, threats or force.
