Prosecutors withdraw subpoena in D'Angelo case

Prosecutors in the federal case against former Overture Center President Robert D'Angelo have withdrawn a subpoena of Amazon.com customers after a judge ruled against the measure earlier this year.

The June ruling by U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephen Crocker, unsealed last week, denied a request for the identities of thousands of Amazon customers. Prosecutors were seeking out possible witnesses for the case against D'Angelo, who was indicted in October on fraud charges after using his Madison office to sell used books on Amazon.com without reporting the income.

He had served as the president of Madison's Overture Center for the Arts, one of the highest-paid positions in the city, until his retirement in September 2005 amid sexual harassment allegations.
