Subpoenas and Other Legal Documents
A subpoena is a legal document that may be issued in connection with a court proceeding. A subpoena may require an individual to give testimony or to produce documents for inspection and/or copying by another party. A subpoena must meet certain requirements before it is legally enforceable. Other legal documents include court orders, notices, and formal complaints.
If someone appears with a subpoena and attempts to serve you with it in connection with your work at York, take the following steps:
- Explain to the individual that you are not authorized to accept the document.
- Direct the person to the Office of Legal Affairs and Labor Relations, Room 2H05.
- If the person does not comply, call our office immediately 718-262-2140. Our office will advise you.
- If you receive a subpoena or other legal document through the mail, you should mark the date and time of receipt on the envelope, sign your name on the envelope, and have all the documents delivered to the Office of the Office of Legal Affairs and Labor Relations, Room 2H05.
If you have any questions, call us at 718-262-2140.
