What Can Be Requested in a Federal Subpoena

A serving party can request a range of evidence, up to and including testimony from a live witness that a court ordered subpoena commands to appear at a trial.

The subpoena acts as an advance notice that requested parties produce documents, records, data, testimony — anything that might be admissible as evidence in the case against the individual or entities involved in a lawsuit.

These types of requests are constrained by federal as well as local rules that describe what can be furnished in one of these requests.

The two types of Subpoenas

As per federal rules, requesting parties can request one of two evidence types.

Federal Records subpoena

This is a request that compels a party to produce documents, records, data or written accounts of some item related to the case.

No witness fees are required to be tendered at the time of service for a federal records subpoena but a witness who produces copies of records may submit to the subpoenaing party a request for compensation. The witness may later recover reasonable copying costs.

A federal records subpoena may command productions of records up to 100 miles of where the person resides, is employed, or regularly transacts business in person.

In fact, this is preferable. Courts and judges have different findings on whether or not this is a requirement for them, but subpoena notice before service gives the requested party time to counter the request serve with written objection, as per the federal government’s rules.

Federal Witness subpoena

This is a request that compels a witness to appear in person at a deposition, a trial or hearing to give their testimony.

An issuing court or attorney issues the court order to the witness. A witness fee of $40.00, per day and $0.56 per mile, round trip from the subjects residential address is required to be paid at the time of service.

A federal witness can only be compelled to travel up to 100 miles of where the person resides, is employed, or regularly transacts business in person.

Beware of Expense Caps or Undue Burden

Individuals who request information through a subpoena are required to not impose significant expense resulting from compliance with these requests.

If the recipient finds that exceptional circumstances or costly measures would be required to produce the desired information, they may counter with written objections to block the subpoena from being fulfilled due to the undue burden incurred financially.

A Federal Subpoena is a Complex but Powerful Tool to Have on Your Side

When executed well by a requesting party and done in accordance with civil procedure and federal rules, a federal subpoena can be an important part of a court proceeding.

Of course, a network of restriction apply: applicable local rules, whether the person resides in the jurisdiction of the issuing court, territorial limits, etc.
