What is the statute of limitation on Subpoena Duces Tecum in Nevada District Court? I can't find any statute of limitation under the Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure. I was served with a Subpoena Decus Tecum and I want to know when it will expire so it's not enforceable any longer.
There is no Statute of Limitations on Subpoena Duces Tecums. If you were served with a Subpoena Duces Tecum, then you should have appeared and/or produced the records they may have sought via the subpoena. Failure to appear would be a violation of a Court Order and, possibly, contempt of the Court's Order. You should contact the person who served the subpoena and ask if they still need you to appear and/or produce records. If there is some valid reason not to produce them or to appear, then you should retain Counsel to file a Motion for Protective Order from the Court instructing that the records would not be produced.
Hope this helps.
