Attorneys for indicted casino owner Milton McGregor are objecting to a judge's order that blocked McGregor's attempt to subpoena former Gov. Bob Riley to testify in Alabama's gambling corruption trial.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Terry Moorer blocked a subpoena by McGregor's lawyers on Sunday night. He ruled they had not shown the relevancy of Riley's testimony. But the judge left open the possibility they could try again later.

McGregor's lawyers filed an objection Friday. They say they have established good reasons to believe that Riley's testimony would be relevant and useful at trial. But they said they can't make a full examination of how Riley would be relevant until the trial is well under way.

The trial had a day off Friday and will resume Monday.
