Subpoena Service – Newly enacted provision of the CPLR under which an out-of-state subpoena can be submitted to either the clerk of the court where the discovery is to take place or an attorney licensed to practice law in this state, and either of them can issue a New York subpoena.
Effective January 1, 2011, pursuant to New York State C.P.LR. § 3119, the County Clerk will be required to, in a purely ministerial manner, issue a local subpoena seeking discoverable materials and/or individuals to be deposed, upon the receipt of a duly issued out-of-state subpoena. The terms of the local subpoena will mimic the out-of-state subpoena and also include all of the contact info of the out of state attorneys or the pro se litigant’s info. This amendment to the C.P.L.R. brings New York in line with other states which have already adopted the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act, Which was enacted to create, “an efficient and inexpensive procedure to litigants to depose out-of-state individuals and for the production of discoverable materials that may be located outside of the trial state. 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).

City Marshals are appointed by the Mayor for five (5) year terms. Marshals primarily enforce orders from Civil Court cases, including collecting on judgments, towing, seizing utility meters and carrying out evictions. Marshals collectively perform approximately 25,000 evictions per year. Marshals are regulated by Department of Investigations but, unlike the City Sheriff, they are not City employees. Marshals collect fees, which are set by statute, from the private litigants whose judgments they enforce, and they also retain five percent of any money they collect on judgments. Marshals must pay an annual assessment to the City consisting of $1,500 plus 4.5% of their gross income.
The New York City Department of Investigation is one of the oldest law-enforcement agencies in the country and an international leader in the effort to combat corruption in public institutions. Department of Investigations strategy attacks corruption comprehensively through systemic investigations that lead to high-impact arrests, preventive internal controls and operational reforms that improve the way the city runs.
