( 2._ Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP Rodney Square, 1000 N. King Street, Wilmington, DE 19801 ADDRESS OF SERVER(c) Protecting a Person Subject to a Subpoena. (1) Avoiding Undue Burden or Expense; Sanctions. A part or attorney responsible for issues and serving a subpoena musttake reasonable steps to avoid imposing undue burden or expense on a person subject to the subpoena. The issuing court mustenforce this duty and impose an appropriate sanction-which may include lost earnings and reasonable attorneys fees-on a partyor attorney who fails to comply. (2) Command to Produce Materials or Permit Inspection. (A) Appearance Not Required. A person commanded to produce documents, electronically stored information, ortangible things, or to permit the inspection of premises need not appear in person at the place of production or inspection unlessalso commanded to appear for a deposition, hearing, or trial. (B) Objections. A person commanded to produce documents or tangible things or to permit inspection may serve onthe party or attorney designated in the subpoena a written object to inspecting, copying, testing or sampling any or all of thematerials or to inspecting the premises - or to producing electronically stored information in the form or forms requested. Theobjection must be served before the earlier of the time specified for compliance or 14 days after the subpoena is served. If anobjection is made, the following rules apply: (i) At any time, on notice to the commanded person, the serving party may move the issuing court for an order compelling production or inspection. (ii) These acts may be required only as directed in the order, and the order must protect a person who is neither a party nor a partys officer from significant expense resulting from compliance. (3) Quashing or ModifYing a Subpoena. (A) When Required. On timely motion, the issuing court must quash or modify a subpoena that- (i) fails to allow a reasonable time to comply; (ii) requires a person who is neither a party nor a partys officer to travel more than 100 miles from where that person resides, is employed, or regularly transacts business in person- except that, subject to Rule 45(c)(3)(B)(iii), the person may be commanded to attend a trial by traveling from any such place within the state where the trial is held; (iii) requires disclosure of privileged or other protected matter, if no exception or waiver applies; or 2
  3. 3. (iv) subjects a person to undue burden. (B) When Permitted. To protect a person subject to or affected by a subpoena, the issuing court may, on motion,quash or modify the subpoena if it requires; (i) disclosing a trade secret or other confidential research, development, or commercial information; (ii) disclosing an unretained experts opinion or information that does not describe specific occurrences in dispute and results from the experts study that was not requested by a party; or (iii) a person who is neither a party nor a partys officer to incur substantial expense to travel more than 100 miles to attend trial. (C) SpecifYing Conditions as an Alternative. In the circumstances described in Rule 45©(3)(B), the court may,instead of quashing or modifying a subpoena, order appearance or production under specified conditions if the serving party: (i) shows a substantial need for the testimony or material that cannot be otherwise met without undue hardship; and (ii) ensures that the subpoenaed person will be reasonably compensated.(d) Duties in Responding to a Subpoena. (1) Producing Documents or Electronically Stored Information. These procedures apply to producing documents orelectronically stored information. (A) Documents. A person responding to a subpoena to produce documents must produce them as they are kept in theordinary course of business or must organize and label them to correspond to the categories in the demand. (B) Form for Producing Electronically Stored Information Not Specified. If a subpoena does not specify a form forproducing electronically stored information, the person responding must produce it in a form or forms in which it is ordinarilymaintained or in a reasonable usable form or forms. (C) Electronically Stored Information Produced in Only One Form. The person responding need not produce thesame electronically stored information in more than one form. (D) Inaccessible Electronically Stored Information. The person responding need not provide discovery ofelectronically stored information from sources that the person identifies as not reasonably accessible because of undue burden orcost. On motion to compel discovery or for a protective order, the person responding must show that the information is notreasonably accessible because of undue burden or cost. If that showing is made, the court may nonetheless order discovery fromsuch sources if the requesting party shows good cause, considering the limitations of Rule 26(b )(2)(C). The court may specifyconditions for that discovery. (2) Claiming Privilege or Protection. (A) Information Withheld. (i) expressly make the claim; and (ii) describe the nature of the withheld documents, communications, or tangible things in a manner that, without revealing information itself privileged or protected, will enable the parties to assess the claim. (B) Information Produced. If information produced in response to a subpoena is subject to a claim of privilege or ofprotection as trial preparation material, the person making the claim may notify any party that received the information of theclaim and the basis for it. After being notified, a party must promptly return, sequester, or destroy the specified information andany other copies it has; must not use or disclose the information until the claim is resolved; must take reasonable steps to retrievethe information if the party disclosed it before being notified; and may promptly present the information to the court under sealfor a determination of the claim. The person who produced the information must preserve the information until the claim isresolved.(e) Contempt. The issuing court may hold in contempt a person who, having been served, fails without adequate excuse to obeythe subpoena. A non partys failure to obey must be excused if the subpoena purports to require the nonparty to attend orproduce at a place outside the limits of Rule 45(c)(3)(A)(i). 3
