Salinan loses Supreme Court appeal over lawsuit orders TOPEKA — The Kansas Supreme Court Saturday upheld an order requiring Salina Realtor George Etherington, 443 Aullwood, to produce business and personal tax returns and documents showing his financial worth. Etherington had appealed the order, by Saline County District Judge Morris Hoobler, in connection with two lawsuits filed against him by Salinans Allen R. Dodge, 307 S. Oakdale, and Jack K. Fleming, 2312 Melrose Lane. Both plaintiffs bad sued for repayment of loans they had made to Etherington. On June 8, 1976, Dodge won a summary judgment of $3,250 plus interest for a one-year loan made Dec. 30, I960, and Fleming won a summary Judgment of 14,311.01 plus interest for a 90-da^r loan made^une 10,1975. Subsequently, both subpoenaed Etherington's business and personal records to learn his financial worth in efforts to collect the judgment. Etherington objected on grounds confidential information about other persons' finances would be released also. On Oct. 24, 1978, Judge Hoobler denied Etherington's motion to quash the subpoena and on Jan. 2, 1979, he ordered Etherington to produce the documents. Ten days later he denied Etherington's motion for inspection of the documents "in camera" — privately by the judge • The Supreme Court's action denies Etherington's attempt to overturn both Hoobler's order to produce the documents and the order denying "in camera" inspection. *
