Litigation Release No. 17273 / December 13, 2001
COMMISSION MOVES TO ENFORCE INVESTIGATIVE SUBPOENA
SEC v. Charles B. Nelson, Case No. 1:01MS00468 (D.D.C. Dec. 13, 2001).
On December 13, 2001, the Commission filed an application in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia for an order to enforce an investigative subpoena served on Charles B. Nelson of Rancho Mirage, California. The subpoena sought documents and testimony from Nelson relating to his employment at and dealings with Platforms International Corporation, also known as Platforms Wireless International Corporation, an Oklahoma corporation headquartered in Los Angeles, California.
The Commission's application alleges that Nelson has not complied with the subpoena. In its application, the Commission argues, among other things, that Nelson has no valid reason for failing to comply with the subpoena. A hearing on the Commission's motion has not yet been scheduled.
