Local Rule 35

 

TREATMENT OF WITNESSES

 

 

35. (A)

Witnesses shall be subpoenaed only for the approximate time in which they shall be used. All attorneys shall investigate the entire circumstances surrounding their actions to make sure that the person named in the subpoena is the correct person to be brought to Court.

The Court shall be notified immediately if the witness cannot be used at the time specified in the subpoena so that other arrangements may be made for the testimony.

Violation of this rule shall be treated as contempt of Court.
