Just reported by Kathleen Seidel:
From the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire, Case No. 1:08-mc-00013-JM:
ENDORSED ORDER granting MOTION to Quash Subpoena.
Text of Order: “Granted. Attorney Clifford Shoemaker is ordered to show cause within 10 days why he should not be sanctioned under Fed R Civ P 11 – see Fed R Civ P 45(a)(2)(B) which requires that a deposition subpoena be issued from the court in which the deposition is to occur and Fed R Civ P 45 (c)(1) commanding counsel to avoid burdensome subpoenas. A failure to appear will result in notification of Mr Shoemaker’s conduct to the Presiding Judge in the Eastern District of Virginia.”
So Ordered by Magistrate Judge James R. Muirhead.
Yes! Clifford Shoemaker has been slapped down in a big way for his abuse of the subpoena privilege.
