Braswell v. United States

487 U.S. 99 (1988)


Braswell (D) was the president of two corporations. A federal grand jury issued a subpoena requiring him to produce the books and records of the corporations. D moved to quash the subpoena, arguing that the act of producing the records would be a violation of his 5th Amendment privilege. The district court denied the motion. The 5th Circuit affirmed.
