Judge Quashes Quazy Quaid Subpoena


Self-described “Star Whacker” targets Randy and Evi Quaid had their subpoena dreams quashed on 7/28 by Judge Colleen Sterne, who ruled that the Sheriff’s Office isn’t required to provide the couple ​— ​who fled to Canada and have warrants out for their arrest related to a 2010 squatting incident in Montecito ​— ​with documentation related to those arrests. Sterne ruled fugitives of the court can’t request something of the court and that criminal matters must be handled before civil ones. The subpoena arose as part of a lawsuit the Quaids filed in Indiana in April against bail company American Surety, which they say issued $500,000 bonds for each of them without their consent.
