Appeals court may step into Miers subpoena dispute

Late Thursday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, in response to a Justice Department request, ordered lawyers for the House of Representatives and the White House to brief it by 4 p.m. Wednesday on whether it has jurisdiction to delay a lower court's order that former White House counsel Harriet Miers must appear before Congress to testify about the firing of nine U.S. attorneys in 2006. Miers is scheduled to appear Thursday.
