In accordance with the above, upon receipt of an out-of-state subpoena the County Clerk will compare same with an in-state subpoena (to be drafted and presented by the one submitting the out-of-state subpoena, along with a copy of the in-state subpoena to be filed in the County Clerk’s Office). If the information requested in the out-of-state subpoena is identical to the in-state subpoena the Court Clerk will the then time stamp the in-state subpoena, as filed and return same for a fee of fifteen dollars ($15.00).
