D.A. won’t call her.
Body attachment recalled.
Simpson’s first wife, Marguerite, apparently didn’t want to testify against him. The prosecution, in an effort to get her on the witness stand, had the court issue a body attachment*, then, apparently had a change of heart.
*“A writ of body attachment is a process issued by the court directing the authorities to bring a person who has been found in civil contempt before the court. The process may also be called an order of commitment for civil contempt or a warrant for civil arrest.
“A writ of body attachment may be ordered, for example, when a witness fails to appear in response to a subpoena. It is often issued after a court-ordered fine or forfeiture has not been paid. Body attachments may be issued in contempt, civil, or criminal proceedings.”
