Speaker, The Trial Network, "Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Responding to a Rule 45 Non-Party Subpoena," Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
October 27, 2017 | 12:40 PM - October 27, 2017 | 1:00 PM PST
Rule 45 subpoenas in which the requesting party seeks extensive information from a non-party, including ESI, can place non-parties in an extremely uncomfortable position. While compliance with Rule 45 subpoenas may force a non-party to incur exorbitant expenses, recently amended Rule 45 includes protections for non-parties that all attorneys should be aware. Trial lawyer Scott Etish will address how to utilize Rule 45 to comply with and object to third-party subpoenas in a cost-effective manner and provide practical advice on seeking to shift costs, including attorneys’ fees, onto the other party.
