new subpoena rules in federal court

The ABA published a summary of the amendments to Rule 45.

Some of the more interesting changes:

Issuing court is the court in which the case is pending (no longer the court in which the recipient is located).  -- 45(a)(2)

Nationwide service permitted -- 45(b)(2)

Reminder that other parties must be served BEFORE the subpoena is served on the recipient -- 45(a)(4)
