Pitino's attorney seeks to kill subpoena

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The attorney for University of Louisville
basketball coach Rick Pitino wants to quash a subpoena from the
woman accused of trying to extort his client.
Steve Pence filed a motion Friday asking U.S. District Judge
Charles R. Simpson to throw out the subpoena from Karen Cunagin
Sypher, saying anything he knows about the case is protected by
attorney-client privilege. Pence's motion does not say why his
testimony was being sought.
Sypher has pleaded not guilty to extortion, retaliating against
a witness and lying to the FBI. She is accused of demanding college
tuition for her children, her house to be paid off and $10 million
from Pitino. Opening statements are scheduled for Monday in
A jury of eight men and eight women will hear the case. Four
jurors will be excused as alternates before deliberations.
