Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has weighed in on a skirmish over a mysterious grand jury subpoena, which is rumored to be connected to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

The dispute involves an unknown company owned by a foreign nation, which has opposed the subpoena and appealed a related contempt citation. In a brief ordering issued Sunday, Roberts bided that contempt cite and associated fixed penalty pending a response from government lawyers, due Dec. 31.

While the substance of the conflict between lawyers and the company remains unclear, Politico reported the dispute seems to involve Mueller’s team.
