Subpoenas, Court Orders and Search WarrentsWhat do I do if I receive a subpoena, court order or search warrant?
- Notify the Office of Legal Affairs (OLA) immediately and provide them with a copy of the subpoena, court order or search warrant. OLA will then provide guidance on the appropriate response to the issuing/serving attorney, court or law enforcement agency.
- Do not contact or discuss the subpoena, court order or search warrant with the issuing/serving party. Let OLA do that for you if necessary.
Important Note: OLA can only advise individuals with subpoenas, court orders and search warrants received concerning matters within an individual's scope of employment as an employee of the University. For any subpoenas, court orders or search warrants seeking information outside the scope of employment, University employees should seek private legal counsel.
