Return of Subpoena
A subpoena is a court document issued to a person or entity seeking production of documents or things and sets out a time and place where the documents are to be produced or where the documents can be posted/delivered.
For example, the subpoena will state that documents and things (including a copy of the subpoena) are to be produced on 30 April 2014 at 9.00 am in the Supreme Court of NSW, Level 4, Law Courts Building, Queens Square, 184 Phillip Street, Sydney.
The date on the subpoena is also known as the date for the return of subpoena. More importantly, the subpoena will state the access orders proposed by the issuing party. For example, the issuing party may seek general access to the subpoenaed documents.
If you are required to attend the return of subpoena:
- You may seek orders for access to the documents produced under the subpoena.
- You may seek orders objecting to a party accessing the documents produced under the subpoena.
- If documents have not been produced or the party needs more time to produce, you may seek for the subpoena to be stood over to another return date.
- You may seek any other orders relating to the subpoena.
The parties may not be allowed to access any subpoena documents until the Court has made access orders.
