Shurat HaDin , Israel Law Center, on Wednesday hit controversial former NBA star Dennis Rodman with a subpoena to be deposed about his financial dealings with North Korea following a recent rip he made there related to filming a basketball television series in conjunction with HBO.

Rodman recently caused a stir with his North Korea visit, particularly when he met with the North's leader Kim Jong-un and publicly complimented him. The visit was shortly after North Korea angered the international community with its third nuclear weapons test.

Shurat HaDin head Nitsana Leitner said that despite "the spirit of humor surrounding the [film] series and Rodman himself, Rodman's actions in North Korea are not a trivial matter."
