Newly Enacted NY Subpoena Rule

Checkmark CPLR 2303-a was recently enacted and became effective on January 1, 2008. 

This useful and time saving new rule simplifies the trial subpoena process by allowing a litigant to subpoena a party or a person under the party's control for appearance at trial by simply serving the subpoena upon the party's attorney of record, as set forth in CPLR 2103(b).

The new rule provides:

Where the attendance at trial of a party or person within the party's control can be compelled by a trial subpoena, that subpoena may be served by delivery in accordance with subdivision (b) of rule 2103 to the party's attorney of record.

(Added L.2
007, c. 192, § 1, eff. Jan. 1, 2008.)
