Loose Lips (3/17) reported that the court has authorized a bench warrant for mayoral candidate Michael Brown. The authorization was requested by D.C. Arena LP, which is seeking payment of a $636,000 judgment against Brown. The authorization does not mean that a warrant for Brown’s arrest has been issued. The authorization allows the plaintiff to seek a bench warrant that would instruct the U.S. Marshal’s Office to compel Brown’s appearance in court.
