Denver (AP) A judge denied a request to subpoena Dick Cheney in a lawsuit filed by a man who claims he was wrongfully arrested for comments he made to the vice president about the Iraq war.

Steve Howards' attorney, David Lane, had argued that secret service agents involved in howards' arrest in beaver creek in June 2006 told different versions of the incident and that only Cheney could clear up what happened.

In denying lane's motion Tuesday to have U.S. Marshals serve Cheney with a subpoena, U.S. Magistrate Judge Craig Shaffer said Lane had “not made a sufficient showing to warrant a deposition at this time.”

Howards claims in his lawsuit that he was arrested and his constitutional rights violated when he happened upon Cheney and his security detail at a mall and took the opportunity to tell him: “your policies in Iraq are disgusting.”
