Judge Orders George W. Bush to Testify

According to the Dallas Morning News, "Judge Martin Hoffman has ordered that former President George W. Bush be deposed in a long-running lawsuit against Southern Methodist University over land acquisition related to the Bush Presidential Library." The testimony will concern "whether SMU officials told him about plans" relating to the land over which his library is to be built "before the university bought the land."

President Bush's lawyers contend that the effort to obtain his testimony is a "publicity stunt," as "it is rare for a sitting or former president to be compelled to answer questions under oath."
