A judge has ruled that a subpoena served to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal should be dismissed in the trial of a woman who calls herself a citizen journalist.
The Times reports that Thursday’s ruling by Senior Superior Court Judge Martha Christian means the governor will not be testifying in the trial of Nydia Tisdale.
Tisdale was arrested Aug. 23, 2014, during a Republican Party rally at a Dawsonville pumpkin farm.
She was charged with obstruction of an officer and trespassing after an altercation with a sheriff’s captain.
The Gainesville newspaper reported that several local residents who witnessed the beginning of the encounter testified Thursday.
Republican officials who attended the rally also testified, saying they were not given any indication that filming wasn’t allowed, and that they had not objected to Tisdale filming the speeches.
