The Securities and Exchange Commission seeks a court order to force former Enron chairman Kenneth Lay to turn over documents relating to his tenure at the bankrupt energy giant. The SEC says Lay has refused to surrender the records because it would violate his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. Lay has not been charged in connection with the Enron scandal. Hear NPR's Jim Zarroli.
