Serving federal subpoenas can be tricky business if you don’t follow the proper procedural requirements. Getting it wrong could lead to the subpoena being quashed or other negative consequences. This article provides an overview of federal subpoena rules and best practices for proper service.
Federal subpoenas are governed by Rule 45 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). Here are some key things to know:
Serving federal subpoenas properly is critical, yet complex. Here are best practices to follow:
It’s highly advisable to hire a professional process server to deliver your federal subpoenas. They know all the rules and will get proof of proper service.DIY service risks errors and no proof. If challenged later, you may be unable to validate service occurred. Using a process server mitigates this.
For subpoenas requesting in-person testimony, you must serve the subpoena within 100 miles of the hearing location stated on the subpoena.Exceeding 100 miles means witnesses can file motions to quash for undue burden. Stay within 100 miles for compliance.
Rule 45 states subpoenas should be served in enough time for the recipient to comply without unreasonable burden.As a rule of thumb, serve at least 10 business days prior to the production deadline. Tighter timelines risk motions to quash.
For organizations, the subpoena must be delivered to an officer, managing agent or designated agent. For individuals, hand delivery to the named person or leaving it at their residence suffices. Verify recipients carefully.
Your process server should provide a formal proof of service document, typically an affidavit, after delivering the subpoena.Retain this! It’s your evidence confirming proper service occurred in case the subpoena recipient contests it later.
If your federal subpoena is properly served but the recipient fails to comply, you can file a motion for contempt sanctions with the issuing court. Remedies can include fines or even arrest warrants in extreme cases.However, contempt motions can be complicated. Consulting an attorney is wise before pursuing contempt for non-compliance. They can advise if you have grounds and the best approach.
While federal subpoena rules aim to ensure due process, mistakes happen. Here are some common pitfalls to avoid:
Staying aware of these pitfalls allows you to serve federal subpoenas correctly and minimize challenges.
Serving federal subpoenas is intricate, but resources exist to help:
With sound guidance federal subpoenas don’t have to be daunting. Follow best practices around service rules, proof of service, deadlines and pitfalls to ensure your subpoenas stand up to scrutiny. Reach out if challenges still arise – legal professionals can advise your best route to resolution.
