An architect involved in a fatal building demolition in Philadelphia is refusing to turn over documents sought by the Department of Labor.
A lawyer for Plato Marinakos cites his client's Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, saying he "reasonably" fears a pending grand jury investigation.
The June 5 collapse of a towering brick wall being demolished killed six people at an adjacent thrift store.
Marinakos is due in federal court Wednesday over his stalemate with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
The OSHA subpoena seeks demolition and safety plans, photographs and correspondence with demolition contractor Griffin Campbell.
Marinakos has turned over 116 pages of material, but says the rest is protected.
Demolition subcontractor Sean Benschop is charged with six counts of involuntary manslaughter. Several civil lawsuits have also been filed.
